Local non-profit Nebraska Minority Resource Center received a $1,000 grant from the Shopko Foundation to help support their diabetes and obesity prevention program “Rethink your Drink.”

“As our organization continues to grow, and with local support from generous Corporations like Shopko hometown, we will be able to offer more programs for our American Indian and minority community members,” the organization said in a statement.

NMRC will be offering Diabetes and Obesity prevention workshops in Sheridan County as well as Dawes and Cherry Counties. To register for the workshops, and for more information on dates, times and locations, please visit their website at www.nmrc-inc.org.

The Shopko Foundation’s Community Charitable Grant program was established to support charitable non-profit organizations through limited funding of local programs in Shopko communities. 

“The Foundation is pleased to recognize the good work you do and applauds your efforts and commitment to support your community,” the foundation said in a letter to the organization.
