Great Norther Services’ Executive Director Bonnie Kubowitz accepts a $4,000.00 grant check from Francisco J. Castillo, Union Pacific Railroad Director of Public Affairs-Corporate Relations.
The Union Pacific Foundation donated $4,000.00 to Great Northern Services this spring to help supplement and expand their Summer Food Program, which provides free lunches during the summer months to all children 18 years old and younger who wish to participate.
“We are honored and grateful to receive the Foundation’s support,” Great Northern executive director Bonnie Kubowitz said. “This funding has helped us expand our Summer Food Program from one location to four locations in south Siskiyou County, which means more children will be fed and more parents will enjoy peace of mind knowing that their children are getting the nutrition they need while school is closed.”
In the letter confirming the grant, Union Pacific president Scott Moore reflected on what he described as Union Pacific’s “long-standing commitment to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve and where our employees live and work.”
He stated that Union Pacific is “proud to support Great Northern Services” and extended the company’s best wishes for the organization’s continued success.
