18 Jun Phillips 66 Awards Funds to Foundation for Conrad Pathway
The Pondera HealthCare Foundation (PHCF) received $10,000 for phase I of the Conrad Pathway which is scheduled to begin construction at the end of the year. This grant will help purchase trailhead and directional signs, ADA accessible benches, trashcans, and pet waste stations along the approximately one and a half miles of trail. Phillips 66 through its philanthropy efforts provides funding to give back to communities in their affiliate areas. The Foundation was invited to participate in this charitable program.
The Conrad pathway was identified as the highest priority for PHCF during its 2016 roundtable of healthcare representatives and concerned citizens. This grant will contribute to the overall effectiveness of the path with the ultimate goal of providing a healthy and safe alternative for outdoor recreation in Pondera county.
The Foundation is waiting to hear from the Recreational Trails Program which will also provide a portion of the funding for trail construction. The City of Conrad, Pondera County, the Pondera County Conservation District and the Pondera HealthCare Foundation join Phillips 66 in providing funding and other resources to the project which will help make this dream a reality. The Foundation is also accepting donations for anyone wishing to contribute to pathway construction. Please send checks to the Pondera HealthCare Foundation at P.O. Box 802, Conrad, Montana 59425. State on the check that is to be used for the Conrad pathway.
