Hardy Donates To County Foundation

Hardy Telecommunications Inc. has donated $250 to the Hardy County Community Foundation to benefit the endowment fund started by Stanley Foltz for the Mathias Community Center.

Hardy Marketing/Human Resource Director Derek Barr presented Amy Pancake, affiliate director for the Community Foundation, a $250 check on Sept. 2 at Hardy’s Moorefield Office.  The check was earmarked for the charitable cause set up by Foltz, the foundation’s 2010 Spirit of Hardy County.

“This gift will be added to the Marcella Foltz and Don Biller Fund, which was established in honor of (Mr. Foltz),” Mrs. Pancake said.  “Mr. Foltz named the fund in honor and memory of his wife and good friend.  It is a designated fund that will benefit the Mathias Community Center.”

Mrs. Pancake said the foundation helps donors ensure that their causes will benefit well into the future.

“It is our privilege and honor to work with donors to set up a fund with their vision, and then, for generations for come, make grants and scholarships that are guided by that vision.  Mr. Foltz’s vision, as well as his wife, Marcella, and Don Biller, will forever be honored by the support made possible through this fund,” she said.

Derek said Hardy Telecommunications was proud to support the foundation, Foltz, and the Mathias Community Center.

“The Hardy County Community Foundation does wonderful work for Hardy County residents, and the Mathias Community Center has long been an important part of our area,” he said.  “We’re happy to support Mr. Foltz’s worthy vision.”

Mrs. Pancake said Hardy Telecommunications’ contribution exemplifies its commitment to local values.

“People here in Hardy County have a strong love of our families, our neighbors, and our countryside.  They are opting, more and more, to give something permanent to the community through endowment.  We’re very honored that Hardy Telecommunications joins us in that vision,” she said.
