Here are a couple of our most recent Grants In Motion recipients. We are proud to partner with them as they work to eradicate hunger in their own communities.
Accotink Unitarian Universalist Church, Burke, VA partners with nearby Halley Elementary School to provide weekend meal packs for 20 students every week. During the school year, the school counselor distributes these packs on Fridays, to ensure the students have nutritious food to eat over the weekends. Accotink children and families energetically assemble the bags several times throughout the year. To supplement their grant, Accotink sponsored an outreach monetary collection, and has setup a bin to receive specific food items throughout the year. http://accotinkuu.org
First Universalist Church of Minneapolis, Minneapolis, MN partners with The Sheridan Story to help combat food insecurity for children within the Minneapolis school system. Funds raised by First Universalist helped The Sheridan Story provide meals on weekends for local children. In addition, First Universalist held a food drive and was able to donate a substantial amount of food toward The Sheridan Story program. http://firstuniversalistchurch.org, www.thesheridanstory.org
