Local organizations share benefits of General Mills Foundation grants

REED CITY — Local organizations were able to share how grant funds from the General Mills Foundation had helped them during a recent gathering on Wednesday, Oct. 12, at the Reed City yogurt production facility.

Norman Elementary School, Pathfinder Library in Baldwin, Pineview Homes in Evart, Spring Hill Camp, Baldwin Community Schools and Girls on the Run.
