A prospective Pella business is also up for a $5,000 grant. Pamela Abrams is hoping to use the money to open her dream business, YesterYear’s Candies, Coffees & More. The original idea Abrams had was to open the small coffee shop and retail space to finance a college fund for her granddaughter who had just turned 12 at the time. Abrams also wants to give back to the community if she’s able to win, and open her business. She says that 14% of profits will stay local to support community organizations, while 7% of profits would be used to help others outside of the community. You can vote for Abrams and YesterYear’s Candies, Coffees & More until the 17th at DreamBigGrowHere.com.
