Micro Grant Provided by Western Coffee Co. - WMS

Recently, Platte County School District #1 had the honor of working with Becky Hilty and Western Coffee Co. to raise money for Platte County teachers and educational resources. The drive-up and delivery coffee company served over 500 drinks in 12 hours during the fundraiser! They went through 30 gallons of milk and raised over $6000. This money has been used to create a microgrant. Teachers have the option to apply for unique and untraditional items for their students and classrooms. See the article below for a glimpse at how this money is benefitting our #oneplatte1 family.

The students have become really interested in playing cribbage in their spare time (homeroom and freetime) and have created a crib club during lunch! Thank you, Western Coffee Co.! -Jennifer Jorgensen
