A great thing about the cooperative difference: when we work together, we make a difference. Our financial partner CoBank offers Sharing Success matching donations up to $5,000 for worthy causes and organizations. That means, when Medina EC makes a donation, CoBank will match that amount.
Last fall, our cooperative applied and CoBank agreed to match our $5,000 donation for a total of $10,000. We were happy to divide this donation between three great organizations.
The Herby Ham Activity Center (Uvalde) received $4,000 to purchase exercise equipment. Their facility is used by residents in the area to stay fit and for physical therapy work.
The Dilley Public Library was granted $4,000 for furniture and technology for their new, state-of-the-art facility.
The historical Uvalde Grand Opera House will use $2,000 for help with repairs to windows that have been in the building since it was built in 1891.
