Alton Housing and Cleanup Donation

Jun 12, 2024


Midway Coop is pleased to announce a donation of $5,000 to the Bull City Community Foundation with a matching donation from CHS Seeds for Stewardship grant, for a total of $10,000!  The funds will be used for the Alton Housing and Cleanup Initiative.  Many small rural communities are shrinking, and this project is trying to address that issue.  There is often a housing shortage in these types of communities as older structures fall into disrepair.  The purpose of the initiative is to facilitate growth in the community by making housing available to new residents.
 
The Alton Housing and Cleanup Initiative has used some of the funds for the first phase of the initiative, which focused on removing dilapidated structures to create buildable lots and obtaining lots under the Bull City Community Foundation’s ownership.  The balance of the donation will be utilized on the house build.  Groundbreaking is expected in late June with completion in the spring of 2025. 
 
“This initiative is making our community stronger,” says Midway Coop General Manager, Craig Mans. “There have already been many donations of time and money to get this project going, and we are proud to double our donation by working with our regional cooperative, CHS.”
 
“We are excited that others have seen the value in our project and contributed.  While this is starting with one new structure we hope to keep moving forward once completed and continue to grow Alton.  We are very appreciative of the donations from Midway Coop and CHS to our project,” said Lorie Adams, member of the Initiative.
