Consider Giving What You Can Today To Help Neighbors In Need

Although recent times have been economically uncertain for many, some may find themselves wanting to express their gratitude this season by giving back to the community. The Golden Valley Community Services Commission (GVCSC) is one option for residents who want to help their neighbors in need.

The GVCSC, formerly known as the Golden Valley Human Services Commission, has allocated $1,992,752 to help fund various agencies that serve locals of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities since its inception in 1992.

Contributions to the GVCSC continue to make a positive difference in the community by assisting organizations with a proven track record of bettering lives, including:

  • food, financial help for homelessness prevention, and clothing for low-income residents (PRISM)
  • hot, nourishing meals delivered to home-bound residents (CEAP Meals On Wheels/Northwest Dinner At Your Door)
  • counseling and simple home maintenance for senior citizens (Senior Community Services), support for families (HUG Helping Us Grow), and programs for families, seniors, and individuals to help them stay safe, be fit and healthy, and grow as community leaders (YMCA-New Hope)
  • shelter and help for victims of domestic violence (Sojourner Project) and services to stabilize families and help build healthier communities (ResourceWest)

Such support made a difference to a client at HUG, who said, "I received three grandchildren when my adult child went into long-term treatment. On Social Security, I was not sure how I was going to make ends meet with three new little ones to feed, clothe, and diaper. Your help with diapers and wipes kept me going. Thank you."

In addition, last year ResourceWest "served a total of 2,092 households, including school supplies for 1,082 students and 439 families, winter gear for 1,055 youth and 325 families, 49 emergency transportation grants, and 36 childcare and academic assistance scholarships, to name a few. All of this was possible through the help of local donations.

On Give To The Max Day (today), residents are encouraged to give what they can, as every little bit helps. The bulk of GVCSC funding comes from small donations (ranging from $5 to $30), and every contribution to the GVCSC goes directly to local organizations working to build a stronger, healthier community.

Donations can be made online or in-person at Brookview.
