Junior United Way Board Offers Community Mini Grants
The Junior United Way board has started its annual applications process for community mini grants. Grants ranging from $100 to $2,000 will be awarded to any group or organization in Stanly County working to better the community. Applications are available by contacting the United Way office at 704-982-6916. The deadline to submit an application is Thursday, April 29th.

The JUWB awarded $5,000 in local grants just last year. The money was used for programs such as car seats for the Safe Kids program, cages for the animal shelter and helping Habitat for Humanity with future builds.

High school students from across the county serve on the Junior United Way Board and raise the money for the grants. JUWB began in the fall of 2001 as a collaboration between the Stanly County Chamber of Commerce and the United Way of Stanly County. "Junior United Way is a great opportunity to teach high school students how non-profits work and their importance," commented Jennifer Moxley, executive director of the Stanly County United Way. Both United Way and the Chamber match funds raised by the group of high school students. "When the Junior United Way Board comes to us with $1,000 the students raised through donut sales for instance," Chamber President/CEO Marianne Bright explained, "we will match that $1,000 with money from our Matching Grant Fund. This has taken philanthropy and community service to the next level."
