Pamida Foundation Announces Grant To Lifetime Learning Center & Reaching Reluctant Readers

The Memphis Pamida and the Pamida Foundation recently announced the awarding of $1000.00 each to Scotland County R-1 Lifetime Learning Center and Reaching Reluctant Readers. Funds for the grant were made possible by Pamida's first Charitable Golf Outing held in October of 2000, which raised a total of $669,980 to be used towards fulfilling the Foundation's goal of making a difference in Pamida hometowns and communities.

The grant to Scotland County R-1 school system will be used to support the Lifetime Learning Center which assists special education students gain independent living skills and the Reaching Reluctant Readers which helps children in grades three-six by providing literature within their reading level. The presentation of the check was held on June 14, 2001 at the Memphis Pamida store.

"Pamida is committed to taking an active part in the continued growth and well being of our Memphis community," said store team leader Rhonda Elenbaas of Memphis Pamida. "We are proud to join with the Scotland County R-1 school system in these important projects."

Michael Hopkins, Pamida president, explained, "At Pamida, corporate citizenship is more than a responsibility; it's a privilege. We are proud to support a variety of charitable, family, and children's organizations and community events, and are very pleased to support the Scotland County R-1 school system in our Memphis community."

Pamida is a subsidiary of ShopKo Stores, Inc., a Fortune 500 company headquartered in Green Bay, WI, operating 390 retail stores in 22 states, primarily in the Midwest, Western Mountain and Pacific Northwest regions.
