Common Cup makes city center new home

Common Cup Ministry will now call the Glencoe City Center home. The organization held an open house on May 17 to introduce visitors to its new location on the north side of the center.  
Previously Common Cup, an outreach organization of McLeod County churches, was housed in the basement of First Evangelical Lutheran Church. Director Bev Bonte said the new location in the city center reiterates that the organization is a community effort.
“We wanted them to know this is all churches. It’s for the county. So this is a perfect place to be to show people that,” she said.
Bonte said the move has gone well so far.
The office will now be the center of the various programs that Common Cup runs.
The group first started using the room as a packing area for its weekend backpack program. The head of the program in Glencoe, Cheryl McDougall, explained the program provides weekend meals for students who qualified for free or reduced school lunch. McDougall said Common Cup accepts donations of food, money or time to help run this program.
