$2,500 Grant received from Cherryland Electric Cooperative

The Interlochen Public Library New Building campaign can add another local business to its growing list of supporters. The library was among five Grand Traverse area non-profits to receive grants through the Cherryland Cares program.

Over the past five years, volunteers on the Cherryland Cares board have granted nearly $250,000 to area non-profits. Each month, when members choose to round up their electric bill to the nearest dollar, money is placed into the Cherryland Cares fund. A volunteer board reviews grant applications from local nonprofits and allocates funds. One hundred percent of the donated money is returned to worthy community causes.
