The Grainger Foundation
The 4-H Foundation of Sonoma County is excited to announce that we recently received a generous donation of $10,000 for scholarship funds from The Grainger Foundation. These scholarship funds will be available to Sonoma County residents pursuing a career in Agriculture or Agri-Business. They must be entering or attending a college or trade school. Wallace Wong, Branch Manager of the Grainger store in Rohnert Park, made the scholarship donation as part of Grainger’s commitment to the communities where it does business. He said many of Grainger’s customers in Sonoma County are wineries and agricultrural businesses. The scholarships are a way for Grainger to give back to the Sonoma County compainies that have been its loyal customers over the last four decades.
