Johnson Foundation library grant
The Cuero Public Library wishes to thank the M. G. & Lillie Johnson Foundation for their generous support in the amount of $ 50,000.
This grant funding will enable us to purchase shelving and tables for the Adult section, foyer and other areas around the library. We cannot begin to thank them enough for their gracious generosity and kindness.
Marshall and Lillie Johnson established the M. G. and Lillie Johnson Foundation, Inc., in 1958 with the original intent to build a Lutheran hospital in the Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas. With the help of Dr. Fred Elliott and Dr. Randolph Clark, the Johnson Foundation gifted a 51, 860-acre ranch in Florida to the University of Texas Cancer Center.
The ranch was sold and its proceeds were used as seed money to construct what is now known as the Lutheran Hospital Pavilion at M. D. Anderson Hospital in Houston, Texas.
This seed money we have been given will be “likened” to the parable of the mustard seed and will provide a haven for both young and old alike to grow, learn, and relax for many years to come.
We are truly grateful, humbled, and blessed by your gift and know that the kindness you have extended to us will be richly repaid by God who is greater than all.
