Heritage Ranch

Heritage Village Seniors Inc. recently awarded its second annual Grant for Minors with a donation of $1,000 to Rancho El Chorro Outdoor School and its science camp.

The Grant for Minors program was established to support youths ages 5 to 18. It provides funds for special projects or organizations that an awardee may be involved with.

Elizabeth Marriott, a student at Cappy Culver Elementary School in San Miguel, applied for the grant to help with funding for special needs children to attend the summer camp.

Elizabeth will attend the camp as a mentor and a junior camp counselor.
