POET gives back
POET Biorefining—Hanlontown recently awarded a $3,000 grant to Lake Mills Community Preschool and Daycare (LMCPD). This grant will give LMCPD the opportunity to update its current tornado safe room.
In her application, LMCPD Director Ashley Brackey writes, “We are looking to update the room by removing the showers to open the space up more to accommodate our growing center. We would put up a better system for organization for the toys so that all of our children from our preschool classrooms would be able to use the tornado room safely and effectively.”
This project will provide the preschool and daycare center a functional safety space if and when it is needed during emergencies.
“POET is proud to support a project which will help protect our youth and in turn, our community,” said Kelly Hansen, General Manager at POET Biorefining—Hanlontown. “We started this community grant program in an effort to seek out people who are never satisfied with the status quo and who are always striving to make our communities even better places to live. We found such a person in Ashley and the entire team at Lake Mills Community Preschool and Daycare and we are excited to partner with them in this new project.”
This was the inaugural year for POET’s Never Satisfied Community Grant program. For more information, visit poet.com/neversatisfied.
