The Starke County Youth Club can continue its efforts to provide quality after school programs to local students thanks to a local business. The nonprofit recently received a $1,000 award from the Golden Living Center Community Support Initiative. SCYC Executive Director Irene Szakonyi says the organization has been delighted to perform service learning projects in partnership with Golden Living Center. She says their gift means quality activities like learning to invest in community can continue at Club.
Community Support Initiative grants are charitable contributions given in support of worthy nonprofit community organizations. Golden Living has contributed nearly $1.75 million into communities it serves. The Knox Golden Living Center has been in Starke County since the mid-1970s, specializing in skilled nursing, rehabilitation and recovery to home as well as long-term care.
The Starke County Youth Club provides a high-quality array of after-school, summer and recreational programs for youngsters throughout the county. They encourage individual growth, support working families and build community. Visit www.thescyc.org for more information.
