ILION, N.Y. – The Ilion Little League will soon have a freshly painted field, after winning the True Value Foundation’s Painting a Brighter Future grant.
The 20 gallons of paint will be used on the field’s buildings and dugouts.
Ilion True Value nominated the Little League group for this year’s grant.
“This was our first time participating in the True Value Foundation’s Painting a Brighter Future program. We are thrilled the grant was awarded to the Ilion Little League and we are able to give back to the community our family business has been serving for over 40 years,” said Debi Cristiano, whose family has owned and operated Ilion True Value Hardware since 1974.
Painting has already started on the field.
