Detroit, MI – EL CENTRAL Hispanic News, Michigan’s oldest and largest bilingual newspaper, proudly announces that we have received a $10,000 cash grant through Elevate Together® powered by Round It Up America® to accelerate our growth and prosperity. “We at EL CENTRAL Hispanic News are so excited and grateful for this award,” said Eva Garza Dewaelsche, Publisher and Owner.
“We look forward to the opportunity to work with the Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Elevate Together to take us to the next level to better serve the information needs of the Hispanic and Latino communities in our region.”
Elevate Together® was designed to help accelerate the creation, growth, and prosperity of Black and Hispanic small businesses through education, access, and aid, in collaboration with the National Urban League’s Entrepreneurship Centers and the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
