Salisbury, Md. (Tuesday, May 17 2016) — Perdue Farms, through a $1,747.36 grant funded by the Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation, is helping the Ruritan Club in Momeyer, N.C., upgrade equipment at the community’s playground.
“The Momeyer Playground Committee has been humbled by the generous financial support from the community,” said Kenneth Parker, Ruritan Club treasurer and committee member.

“We are very appreciative of the support of Perdue and the Foundation for their contribution.”

As Perdue associate and Ruritan Club member Wayne Manning explains, “The playground has been a community attraction for many years and greatly served its purpose to provide a safe and fun area for children and families to enjoy. At Perdue, we believe in giving back to our community and we’re thrilled to offer our support through this Foundation grant.”
