Backpack Food Program
This program provides food for students who may be considered at risk for "Weekend Hunger" during the school year. We are excited to be able to offer this program to all qualified students in K - 12th Grade for the 2020-21 school year.
Classroom volunteer opportunities are available to support teachers through reading and homework support, playground assistance, after-school homework clubs and various other ways.
Performing Arts Support
The GRACE project is active in our schools - currently providing musical instrument scholarships to 20 children and donating instruments to several others. The GRACE Project assists students who need instruments to participate in band and instrumental clubs, as well as scholarships for other fees associated with performing arts programs.
New and Used Instruments are being accepted and can be dropped off at Grace Community Church.
The GRACE Project, in partnership with The Lighthouse Foundation, began with one project called the Full Table Backpack Program in the fall of 2015. The program began with the hope to come alongside families in the Seneca Valley School District whose children may find themselves at risk of 'Weekend Hunger'. These students receive free or reduced breakfast and lunches during the school year. We are excited to offer this program for students in K - 12th Grades in the SVSD schools.
The GRACE Project has expanded to also now include support to students exploring Performing Arts through Band or Strings, a Drug Awareness and Education Program, and Academic Support.
