Pinehurst Park receives $10,000 donation from Mega CO-OP.
The Pinehurst Project recently received a $2,000 donation from Mega CO-OP with a pledge to contribute the same over the next five years. The local cooperative decided to contribute to Pinehurst as a way to give back to the Chippewa Valley community they serve.
“Part of our mission at Mega is to serve families and kids, and this fit perfectly in to that mission,” explained Kevin Stabenow, Store Director at Mega West. “Our commitment for over 75 years has been to serve and support our local communities.” Now that most of the winter snow has melted, the Pinehurst Group is busy getting ready for the biking season. “Our next priority is to complete Phase One of the project,” explained Pinehurst board member, Michael Paul. “Part of that includes enhancing the cross-country ski trails and developing the bike park.”
The Pinehurst Project is a grassroots group of outdoor enthusiasts committed to reinventing Pinehurst Park on the north side of Eau Claire into an outdoor recreation park. More information can be found online at www.pinehurstpark.org. Donations to the Pinehurst Project are accepted through the Eau Claire Community Foundation and will be used for future improvements to the park.
