Plymouth Celebration Raises Money for Community

The Plymouth Chicken BBQ and Dance kicked off at 7 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 15 with the fourth annual fun run, which boasted 130 people who registered to run. 
 Wendi Strein, of Plymouth, who organized the fun run, explained that the event has helped to raise a great amount of money for the community over the course of its existence. These funds have been used for various projects in the community.
  “Each year the proceeds from the run are donated back to the community,” said Strein. “This year it went to the Plymouth lighting project. I don’t have the exact dollar yet, but it’ll probably be around $3,500 that’ll be donated to the lighting project.”
  Strein is glad to see that the event had such a high turnout of people. She explained that the number of people who attend this event has increased in recent years. While this is an important way to highlight what Plymouth has to offer, it also provides another great opportunity.

On Monday, Aug. 10 American National Bank donated $7,500 to a new program at Blue Valley Community Action called Individual Development Accounts, which will help some people to start or expand a small business, buy a house or to pay for college.
  This program, which has also been funded by Union Pacific, will help the community because of the investment that these people will make. It also serves as a way to reduce poverty and its effects.
  Rick Nation, CEO of Blue Valley explained that this program is designed to help people to obtain assets. By helping people to attain assets, it gives them something that can help them in case a personal crisis occurs.
  “The program is a federal program to develop assets for individuals,” said Nation. “One of the things that was found in research was that for people in poverty, it's not just a question of income; it's a question of assets. Rarely do they have assets to fall back on.”
