CULLMAN - Milo’s Hamburgers has awarded $1,000 grants to five organizations in Cullman County, the company announced Monday.

More than 30 organizations and schools in Cullman applied for grants through the Milo’s Little Something Extra Foundation in the spring and five nonprofit organizations were chosen to receive a grant. Schools, as well as local nonprofits with a focus on education and leadership, were encouraged to apply for a grant.

Milo’s was honored to present the grants to the following schools and nonprofits.

  • Good Hope Primary School received a grant for its Math Manipulatives program, which will introduce more hands-on math skills to students.
  • West Elementary School received a grant to update its sixth-grade science classroom with new materials and supplies.
  • The United Way of Cullman County received a grant to assist its agencies.
  • ALAbundant received a grant to help stock the pantry for Knapsacks for Kids, a program that gives non-perishable food items to underprivileged students in schools across Cullman County.
  • The fifth grant was given to Brooks’ Place, a child advocacy program that works to nurture hope and healing in the lives of children and families impacted by child sexual abuse.

“We are honored and excited to be getting more deeply involved with organizations that have local purposes. We believe in the value of hard work, leadership and helping our communities become better places,” said Tom Dekle, CEO of Milo’s. “By partnering with the people that do this best, we are convinced we can make a bigger difference together!”
