The funds will go toward various activities, from the purchase of new books and art supplies, to an educational field trip to Hearst Castle. Justin Vineyards says the grants will benefit nearly 6,000 students across 15 schools.
The Justin School Grants program kicked off earlier this year, when $50,000 was donated to further the efforts of Justin employees who volunteer their time to local schools. The program returned in October 2017 and will now be available to teachers each fall.
One awardee was a special education classroom at Pat Butler Elementary in Paso Robles. Funds were used to purchase a sound system and tambourines for dance class. “Through dance, children develop spatial awareness, become less clumsy and pay more attention to others sharing their space,” teacher Yvette Madrigal said.
