December 12, 2019
DAYTON—Project Timothy is one of ten organizations to receive a $5,000 award through the Bayer Cereal Experts Grain for Good Sweepstakes, according to Erica Balmer, Public Relations Manager for Bayer Crop Science Division.
To enter in the sweepstakes entrants had to grow 250 or more acres of cereal crops in eligible states.
Gene Warren was one of ten entrants chosen to direct a donation to the organization of his choice.
Warren said, “I’ve volunteered at Project Timothy and seen how it helps low-income people in our community. The agency provides ways to buy groceries, rent assistance, utility payments, and a room for the night for people without money or a home. The services are appreciated by those in need.”
Darcy Beleny, Board President of Project Timothy said part of the award from the Grain for Good Sweepstakes will be used to purchase Christmas baskets, for local families in need. The baskets will have all the supplies needed to make Christmas dinner.
This is the second year of the Grain for Good Sweepstakes. In total, the Bayer Cereal Experts have donated $100,000 to 20 cereal growers throughout the country.
