A Partner in Change

 

 The GCAUW brings together people from all across the community to tackle the issues that matter most.  
  • The GCAUW has partnered with the Grove City Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals and the Grove City Area School District to begin the Food for Kids backpack program.  Food for Kids provides much - needed weekend supplies of meals and snacks to children who may not have enough food to eat over the weekend during the school year.  "With nearly a third of the children in our school district qualifying for free or reduced meals at school and the number of families registering with the local food pantry continuing to rise, there are many children in Grove City who are not receiving the amount of food they truly need to live healthy lives," says Grove City Area United Way Excutive Director Amy Foley.  "We are thrilled with the Young Professionals and the School District and are grateful they share the same passion as the United Way to see that no child in our community goes hungry and that they receive the support they need to succeed."
  •  Our 6th GCAUW Stuff the Bus edition was a big success!   Because of the great generosity of numerous people, we were able to distribute 107 new backpacks filled with school supplies to Grove City school students in need.  Since we started the Stuff the Bus program in Grove City in 2008, we have distributed 732 backpacks to Grove City Area School District students whose families were unable to purchase these items for them on their own.
  •  2013 brings the GCAUW into its fifth year of providing the Dolly Parton Imagination Library to Grove City Area School District children.  All children under the age of 5 who live within the district are eligible for the program which sends one book directly to the child's home every month, from the time they are registered until they turn 5.  A child can finish the program with a total of 60 books of their own, free of charge.  "The kids receiving the Imagination Library books are so excited to get their books in the mail each month.  It is instilling in them a love of reading and of learning.  It is preparing them for school and helping them to succeed," said Foley.  There are 165 children receiving the books each month and 121 others who have graduated from the program since its start here in 2009.
