The MFA Oil Foundation awarded a $2,000 grant to the Golden Age Club to assist with the costs associated with building renovation and improvements at the Ste. Genevieve Nutrition Center.
The MFA Oil Foundation provides support to nonprofit organizations that are working to improve communities where MFA Oil has a significant concentration of members and employees. Since it was established in 1998, the MFA Oil Foundation has awarded more than $1 million dollars in grants.
MFA Oil director of employee relations Tom May described the MFA Oil Foundation as “a program that allows our company to give support back to the rural communities that are the foundation of our business. The grants the foundation awards help support many youth programs and organizations active in addressing and solving community problems and improving the quality of life.”
MFA Oil Company, formed in 1929, is a farmer-owned cooperative with more than 40,000 members. MFA Oil is one of the top 10 propane companies in the United States.
Tina Winch, adminstrator of the Ste. Genevieve Nutrition Center said the grant provided “an amazing opportunity” for the much-needed renovations to be completed.
