KANSAS – Several Kansas communities, including Galva, Sterling and McPherson, have been named 2022 grant recipients by the Foundation for Rural Service. In all, 31 grants were announced totaling $142,000.

In partnership with Mutual Telephone, Kids Cove in Sterling will receive $5,000 to purchase a robotics package to provide students with the opportunity to learn a variety of computer-related skills. McPherson Fire Department will also receive $5,000 for the purchase of two radio communications devices.
