Midwest Bank and Reinke Manufacturing Donating $100,000 in Matching Challenge Grant to Spring Creek Kids, Inc.
July 20, 2023 (Deshler, NE) – Midwest Bank and Reinke Manufacturing are excited to announce a $100,000 matching challenge grant donation to Spring Creek Kids Inc. Childcare Center. Midwest Bank and Reinke Manufacturing have committed to donating $50,000 each once an additional $100,000 has been raised by the non-profit.
An existing building has been identified and is currently being renovated for the center. The childcare center hopes to open in May 2024 to provide childcare for infants to preschool age. Over time, the center will work to provide after-school programs for older children.
Rebecca Stengel, Market President for Midwest Bank said, “Midwest Bank is proud to support Spring Creek Kids Inc. with this matching challenge grant donation. We’re proud to be a community bank that is focused on supporting the citizens and families that live and work in our region. Along with Reinke Manufacturing, we understand the importance of not only giving back to our community but in supporting the growth and future of our region.”
Chris Roth, Reinke President stated, “Reinke is excited about this daycare center. Childcare is vital for many families, and being the largest employer in the area, this donation was important to us to help support quality childcare for our employees with young children.”
The non-profit has had a successful start to fundraising so far, raising $236,000, but is still seeking additional support to reach its goal. Midwest Bank and Reinke Manufacturing are encouraging other local and regional businesses, community groups, and supportive citizens to donate to the project and help make the childcare center a reality for families here in the area.
