WBV Donates $500 to Local Nonprofit

In October, WINES by V pledged to donate $500 to a local charity, nonprofit, or worthy cause before year end.

Thank you to the numerous people who reached out to share an organization that is doing good in our community. It thrills me to learn about the many ventures taking place, and the big hearts behind them. We are truly fortunate to live in an area surrounded by beautiful nature and genuine people.

After much consideration, I have decided to give the $500 donation to the Anaconda Local Development Corporation.

The more I learn about the ALDC, the more impressed I am at the impact they have on our community; and I think that more people need to know what they do for us!

All of their work is completed as a independently financed non-profit. Zero of our tax dollars go to the ALDC, yet the output they produce is out of this world. The best way I can think of putting their impact into words, is by summarizing a few of their 2019 accomplishments. In 2019 the ALDC:

... brought in new business!

They've also initiated conversations with 4 new businesses (that will employee 2-30 people) that are anticipated to open their doors in 2020.

... supported local businesses!

They wrote and were awarded a $28,000 technical assistance grant to assist Smelter City Brewery in increasing their production. They closed out a $82,500 BSTF worker training grant with International Truck Body. They attained $750 incumbent worker training funds that went to local restaurants for food safety training.
