Successful grant applicants demonstrated their projects would serve basic needs, such as shelter and education; be matched strongly with local funds; and provide opportunities for those impacted to give back to the community, the release says.

Theisen’s Home • Farm • Auto is a four-generation, family-owned business. Three generations of the Theisen
family support this grant program, taking active roles in evaluating each year’s many applications. They also make annual site visits to nonprofit grantees to learn about community needs and to meet the nonprofit leaders serving children and families.
