McPherson, KS, March 2021 – Elyria Christian School is a 2021 Casey’s Cash for Classrooms grant recipient. The school will receive $30,000 to finish their bleacher project. This project will help Elyria Christian School by creating additional safer seating in their gymnasium.
“We are so grateful to receive the Cash for Classrooms grant which will allow us to complete our bleacher project. The completion of this project will provide a safer, more functional facility for our students to learn and grow,” said Tonya Robertson, Director of Development at Elyria Christian School.
“The past year has been unlike any other for schools, and our Cash for Classrooms grants will help schools through this difficult time as well as to improve the learning environment for the future. Casey’s is here for good and that means supporting students, teachers and families in our local communities,” said Katie Petru, Director of Community at Casey’s.
The project at Elyria Christian School involves tearing out the existing bleachers and installing new bleachers on both sides of the gym. The project is expected to be completed by May 2021.
