USA Today's 'A Community Thrives' grant program "empowers communities to take on local challenges and share the issues important to them around education, wellness, and culture, on a national platform." Our application strives to fund a concept nicknamed "Peebles Corner Grocery", a nonprofit mini-grocery, inside a small portion of 954 E. McMillan, which currently stands vacant. The grocery would focus on providing affordably priced, and locally sourced (meaning donations from gardens, local bakeries, local grocery stores, etc.), perishable grocery options.
But we still need donations. The top three organizations that raise the most money are eligible to win an extra $25,000! Right now we're #1 in the entire competition...help us stay in the top three! Every dollar counts. To donate to this campaign, please visit: https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/walnut-hills-redevelopment-foundation1
