GREEN RIVER — The Green River Community Chest on behalf of the Green River Chamber of Commerce received a $10,000 check from Questar Corporation on May 5, 2015.
The money will be used towards the acquisition of the Chamber’s new digital sign board that will be installed at the intersection of Flaming Gorge Way and Uinta Drive in Green River.
In return for the grant, non-profit entities will receive $2,500 of in kind advertising on the sign. Many organizations in the non-profit and service sectors must allocate the majority of their budgets to programing costs, leaving few funds available to actually promote their programs. The new digital sign the Chamber intends to erect is an excellent vehicle for these agencies to reach a wide range of people, including those in need of their services. The four local organizations who will receive free advertising on the Chamber’s new sign are the United Way, the Food Bank, SW-WRAP, and the YWCA.
The Green River Community Chest and the Green River Chamber of Commerce Board would like to sincerely thank Questar Corporation for the grant funding. Without their support, the new sign would not be possible.
