Sean Biggs first learned about conservation of natural resources in middle school.
To his mother, Sheila Biggs of Abilene, it therefore seemed only fitting that a gift be made from the Sean Biggs Memorial with the Community Foundation of Dickinson County to support today’s Dickinson County 7th Annual “Save A Drop” Water Festival for elementary students.
“From the time Sean learned about conservation in middle school he cared deeply about the earth’s limited natural resources,” Sheila Biggs said. “His lifelong passion started as a youth when he started conservation and recycling efforts with his own family.”
Biggs recently presented the $150 grant from the Sean Biggs Memorial to Janet Meyer, WRAPS Coordinator. The free, day-long festival provides a hands-on approach to water education to over 270 elementary students in the county.
The Community Foundation currently stewards over $7 million in charitable assets – the result of contributions from families, individuals and businesses who care about our community. Established in 1999, the Foundation makes charitable giving easy, flexible and effective.
