Special to The Hays Daily News

RUSSELL -- Russell County Area Community Foundation this week announced $4,500 in grants to the Russell Recreation Commission.

"The community foundation is excited to partner with Russell Recreation to offer new educational programs and support improvements at its state-of-the-art exercise facility," said Angela Muller, foundation executive director.

The grants include $2,000 to develop a nature-based program for children 3 to 12 years old. The grant will help purchase prism microscopes, binoculars, field guides, insect nets and other material children will use in a new hands-on, summer learning class. The eventual goal is to offer nature classes year-round, expanding the program to adults.

The Russell Recreation Commission also received $2,500 to support efforts to improve its new center.

"An anonymous donor has come forward to offer $25,000 to the RRC, provided it can raise a matching amount by July 1," Muller said. "The community foundation noticed this and wanted to be a part of this effort."

Since its inception in 2001, the foundation and its donors have directed more than $1 million to meaningful causes and issues throughout the Russell County area, including healthful living, the arts, historical preservation and hunger relief.

For details on how to donate, visit www.rcacf.net or call Muller at (785) 445-3611.
