Main Street Center receives grant award from Dakota Hospital Foundation

The Main Street Center was recently awarded a $4,000 grant from Dakota Hospital Foundation (DHF). The grant will help in funding, with the renovation of the existing cabinet’s and walls that need a new modernization.
“The Main Street Center is very honored and thankful to be receiving this donation from the Dakota Hospital Foundation. We will be using it to make much-needed updates to our kitchen, by painting the walls and refacing the cupboards. By doing this, it will make our kitchen more inviting for members and people renting the Center. It will be a great improvement for our many fundraising events,” said Michelle Finnegan, Main Street Center Director.
“Dakota Hospital Foundation is proud to partner with The Main Street Center to support community health and wellness. With this DHF grant funding, they will be able to offer the Vermillion Community the chance to engage, experience, and enjoy many events at the Center,” said John Prescott, president, Dakota Hospital Foundation.
