Recently, AWG Cares provided a grant request in the amount of $2,500 to the Coleridge Area Fund, an affiliate fund of the Nebraska Community Foundation, in Coleridge, NE, for the Coleridge Christians Caring Group. The grant request was submitted by Cynthia Puntney, AWG Nebraska employee.


The Coleridge Area Fund is a community-led effort to use philanthropy to sustain and build the community of Coleridge and the surrounding area. The fund works to increase charitable giving and to make grants that help create a sustainable and prosperous community. The fund encourages people from all walks of life to give back to the community by providing a full range of charitable giving opportunities.


Coleridge Christians Caring is an ecumenical group that works to be the hands and feet of Christ in the community. Families and individuals in need can receive food from the pantry and some financial help as funds are available. The funds will be used to help the pantry maintain a supply of grocery items for area residents that are at risk throughout the year. During the COVID-19 pandemic, they assisted several families who were food insecure. The group also provides gift certificates to families for fresh items if needed.


Thank you, Cynthia, for donating to AWG Cares and submitting this grant request!
