Van-Far Elementary students sit with tablets provided by a recent grant received in the school district.

Van-Far Elementary School recently received a grant from the General Mills, Inc. and Hannibal Plant’s Community Action Council (CAC).
The grant total is $10,000.
Grant money has purchased Chrome Book technologies (tablets, software, and charging stations) in an effort to give elementary students access to exploratory learning.
Each year, General Mills, Inc. allocates corporate grant dollars across the country to non-profit organizations in an effort to better the communities in which their employees live.
The Hannibal Plant gave away $175,000 during this grant period.
