SIOUX CITY, Iowa – JOLLY TIME Pop Corn Corn announced this week that Melinda Frausto of Dahlonega is one of 100 winners in its national grassroots program, Kernels of Kindness. The program pays tribute to those that make a difference through acts of kindness in their communities.

Frausto won for her work at the Rainbow Children’s Home, a shelter for abused and neglected teen girls who have been removed from their homes.

Both individuals and organizations were eligible for nomination from May 15 through June 16 at jollytime.com, and in total the program received 6,620 entries from throughout the country. Each winner receives $1,000 to continue their work, and a special online gallery features their stories, www.jollytime.com/family/kernels-of-kindness.
