From the Gilbert Education Foundation
2015 Foundation at a Glance
The Foundation and its members have been influential in many educational projects and purchases that have taken Gilbert to the next level in their educational goals.
Grain Fundraiser to Benefit the Community Garden
· The Gilbert Education Foundation facilitated their third annual grain fundraiser to benefit the VoAg/FFA “Community Garden”. Over 725 bushels of corn & beans have been donated by area farmers, along with $600 in cash donations over the last 3 years. The funds raised go to support the infrastructure for the Community Garden. The community garden, with the help of Gilbert Students, have produced pounds & pounds of produce which is donated to the local food pantry each year. What an amazing experience for the students and for the community! It is a wonderful way for students to give back to their community.
