(BEDFORD) - Lawrence County farmers Dennis and Reida Cummings donated a check of $2,500 that they received from America's Farmers Grow Communities to the Bedford Little Theatre.

The $2,500 donation will be used to modernize the concession area of the theatre. The project will include new counter space and sinks.

Dennis Cummings presented the donation to LTB board member Penny May at LTB's winter fundraiser January 29.

America's Farmers Grow Communities has collaborated with farmers to donate more than $22 million to more than 8,000 community organizations across rural America.
