POINT PLEASANT — The Jack & Frances “Babs” Fruth Charitable Trust recently made a donation to The Community Foundation for Mason County for scholarship funds.
Twenty-Five years ago, when Jack and Babs were working on their wills, they decided to start a trust that would be distributed upon both of their deaths to several organizations within Point Pleasant. Babs passed away earlier this year, on Jan. 21.
According to the Fruth family, both Jack and “Babs” held a special place in their heart for their hometown and the people they lived and worked beside for many years. Their hope was to help contribute to the needs and education of Point Pleasant and Mason County communities.
The Community Foundation of Mason County received $52,344.55 for the Jacks and Babs Fruth Scholarship Fund.
“This generous gift will impact countless students now and in the future (forever) as this fund will increase and increase the capacity in which it enriches the lives of our youth,” Christy Sizemore, The Community Foundation of Mason County director, said.
