United Way Awards Grants


The United Way announces three Special Project Grant Applications were approved at the recently held December board meeting. Maplewood United Methodist Church was awarded $3,375.00 to assist with the Jackson Center weekend backpack program to fight weekend hunger. Currently 90 Jackson Center students are provided a bag of food each Friday before leaving school. This is a community collaboration between the following churches: Maplewood U.M.C., Mt. Tabor U.M.C., Jackson Center U.M.C., Grace Lutheran Church, St. Lawrence Catholic Church, Christ the King Church, and Only Believe Ministries.

The Shelby County Ministerial Association was awarded $3,500.00 to assist homeless individuals and/or families. Short term housing and case management will be provided with the intent to move toward sustainable permanent housing and employment.

The Shelby County Juvenile Court was awarded $2,000.00. Monies will be used to ensure Juveniles who successfully complete probation have the necessary documentation to be gainfully employed. Documentation can include governmental I.D.s, social security cards, birth certificates, and transcripts for school graduation.

The United Way awards over $50,000.00 per year through Special Project Grants. To learn more about the Shelby County United Way or the Special Project Grant Process, please visit www.shelbycounitedway.org or contact Executive Director Scott Barr at 492-2101 or sbarr@shelbycounitedway.org.

    I believe what you posted was actually very logical.
    But, think about this, suppose you added a little information? I ain’t suggesting
    your content is not solid.,but what if you added a post title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean United
    Way Awards Grants – Shelby County United Way is kinda plain. Youu might glance at Yahoo’s frront page and wach how
    they create article titles to get viewers to click. You might add a video orr a related pic or two to get
    people interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would
    make your posts a little livelier.
