The BNSF Railway Foundation has just awarded a grant to the Center of Southwest Culture for its Story Riders Project. This grant will enable Story Riders to provide an after school program for low income students at Dolores Gonzales Elementary School beginning in early February. Story Riders will target 5th grade students from elementary schools in predominantly Mexicano and Chicano neighborhoods.
The BNSF Railway Foundation has supported and helped improve quality of life for thousands of communities across the 28 states through which BNSF operates, and where BNSF employees live, work and volunteer. Indeed, as the corporation's assets have grown, the Foundation's giving has expanded to help more and more communities.
