Grants Offered From Shopko Submitted: 01/31/2013
Story By Ryan Abney


RHINELANDER - In 2012, the Shopko Foundation gave just under a million dollars to non-profit organizations.

A handful of those grants were awarded to the Northwoods. Amanda Brown is a supervisior at Rhinelander's Shopko. She'd like to see more applications from non-profits.

"Last year we only gave out one grant that was 500-dollars to the YMCA. And we'd like to give out more, we'd like to be more involved in the community and to see how much we care about them."

Brown says the application proccess isn't tough. Just getting the word out will help more Northwoods cities get involved.

"A lot of bigger communities they get money from all over the place. We want to keep that here at home. So we'd like people to apply so that we can get it to our community."

To apply for a grant, just submit an application 45-days in advance.

The woman was dragged down the street in Milwaukee Monday and eventually lost her grip. But what happened next was unexpected. The car stopped about a block away. And, one of the two carjackers got out, removed the 1-month-old baby, still in his car seat, and left him at the curb.
