Cafe de Shell Awarded $5000 Grant
Midwest Members Credit Union applied for and was awarded a grant that goes to organizations that have been affected by Covid-19. This grant was there to support diversity and inclusion efforts as well as supporting communities that have been impacted by the ongoing restrictions put on by Covid-19. Café De Shell is amazing and having the students run this café to provide meals for the students and local organization for the purpose of teaching responsibility is outstanding. With that said, Midwest Members Credit Union is donating $5000 to Café de Shell! The funds may be utilized in any means for the café whether that is feeding families that have been affected by Covid or providing the Café more equipment to better serve the school and the local communities!!!
