Copper Harbor Trails Club's Mighty Match

2022-11-21 - GivingTuesday Podcast - Episode 2 - Copper Harbor Trails Club and Copper Country Angel Mission-01We start by talking with Nathan Miller from the Copper Harbor Trails Club about a new match they have. Their friends at SRAM are matching up to $500,000 in donations they receive. The bike corporation will be matching whatever cash the Trails Club receives from #GiveCopperCountry! In addition to the match and discussing trail upgrades they have planned, Miller talked in detail about the huge land acquisition made by The Nature Conservancy. This should lead to greater opportunities in the long run for Keweenaw County and Copper Harbor Trails Club. You can learn more about that acquisition in a Copper Country Today podcast that aired November 6.

Copper Country Angel Mission's New Location

Sherry Middlemis-Brown and Copper Country Angel Mission made one really big move following their inaugural participation in #GivingTuesday with Portage Health Foundation. They were able to leverage the $24,000+ they received in donations last year into a down payment and crowdfunding effort to land them a location of their own for the first time. Middlemis-Brown discusses the new location in depth and highlights what they have going on next.
