Fundraiser benefits Elm Street Cafe
Common Wealth Inc., a nonprofit community-development organization, launched a fundraising campaign this week to benefit the Elm Street Cafe, which it plans to locate in the building that houses the Common Wealth Kitchen Incubator.
The incubator is a shared-use commercial kitchen aimed at lowering the costs of starting or expanding a local business. The Elm Street Cafe will feature a coffee and smoothie bar in close proximity to Youngstown State University and Wick Park.
