“Providing our support to projects like this that focus on the educational enrichment of our youth is very important to us,” said Ron Magoon, president & CEO. “We always look for ways in which we can assist community groups with providing the critical resources to aid in the development of children, so they can gain the skills needed to excel academically.”
