Special K Ranch
Special K Ranch Minimize
Date: 1st Quarter, 2014
Location:

Western Security Bank is proud to support the Special K Ranch.

Description:

The Special K Ranch provides family oriented homes on a working ranch for adults who have developmental disabilities.  The residents operate a horticulture business within 18 greenhouses where they grow flowers, vegetables and bedding plants.  The products are sold at Albertsons, Ace Hardware, and a variety of other stores in Montana and Wyoming.  Residents also raise sheep and calves and conduct light manufacturing and assembly work in partnership with Montana Silversmiths. 

The Hands of Hope funds were used to purchase a delivery vehicle that will be used to haul produce to vendors, mostly in Yellowstone County, that sell Special K Products.  The vehicle will also be used to transport residents, staff and products to the Yellowstone Valley Farmers Market from July through October of each year. 

Their two current vehicles have a combined total of 520,000 miles on them and due to the cost of repairs it will not be financially feasible to use these vehicles any longer.

 

We are excited to announce the recipients of the 2014 Hands of Hope campaign.  Congratulations!
