Cherryland’s board voted to retire approximately $2.4 million in capital credits to the membership this December. This amount is a direct passthrough of the retirement Cherryland will receive from its power supplier, Wolverine Power Supply Cooperative, that same month. The amount retired to each member can be found on the December billing statements.

Cherryland Cares Awards $5,350 To Two Nonprofits

At their third-quarter board meeting, the Cherryland Cares board awarded grants to Acme Christian Thrift Store & Food Pantry and Bethany Christian Services. Cherryland Cares has awarded nearly $30,000 in grants to area nonprofit agencies this year.

The Cherryland Cares board is comprised of five volunteer Cherryland members. The funds distributed by Cherryland Cares are a result of members electing to round up their monthly bills to the nearest dollar.

If you are an area nonprofit agency seeking financial help, fourth-quarter grant applications are due Friday, Dec. 6. For more information, please call Shannon Mattson at 231-486-9234 or email at smattson@cherrylandelectric.coop.
