Nov. 25, 2019 | Southern Pioneer is proud to present the City of Liberal with a $2,500 H.U.G.S. grant and a matching grant from CoBank’s Sharing Success program. The grants will be used to purchase materials for a bus shelter in Liberal. The shelter is an Eagle Scout project of Dammion Brown. Dammion approached The City and explained the need of a shelter for those waiting to use the bus. The City approved the project and has been working with Dammion to create the new space.
“It’s an honor to be able to partner together for this great project,” said Anita Wendt, H.U.G.S. team member. We wish Dammion well on his project and cannot wait to see the final results!”
The grants along with other contributions have allowed Dammion to expand the project and create a larger shelter than he was initially anticipating. Additional information regarding the H.U.G.S. program may be found here.
