Cherryland Cares Awards $8,600 To Three Nonprofits

At their first quarter board meeting, the Cherryland Cares board awarded grants to Child and Family Services of Northwestern Michigan, Grand Traverse Dyslexia Association, and The Dream Team – Traverse City. Cherryland Cares awarded $8,600 in grants to these area nonprofit agencies.

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. Members can contribute to the Cherryland Cares fund by calling 231-486-9200, signing up through SmartHub, or emailing us at cec@cherrylandelectric.coop.

If you are an area nonprofit agency seeking financial help, second quarter grant applications are due Friday, June 5. For more information, please call Shannon Mattson at 231-486-9234 or email at smattson@cherrylandelectric.coop.
