GREENWOOD, Ind. – The City of Greenwood today announced it will award $160,000 to four local nonprofits as part of funds received from the CARES Act. The nonprofit organizations work to serve Greenwood’s most vulnerable residents.

 

The Social of Greenwood has been awarded $30,000. The Social of Greenwood is a community that provides programs, activities and services designed to enhance the quality of life of those age 50 and beyond in the Greenwood Community. The funding allows the organization to assist 10,000 seniors in need.

 

Harvest Food Pantry at Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi Catholic Church has been awarded $10,000. Staffed by volunteers, the food pantry is open on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month. It provides food items to more than 300 family members per month. With the additional funding, they will be able to support 6,900 individuals in need.

 

United Way of Johnson County has been awarded $100,000 and plans to use the funding to provide targeted rent subsidies to more than 100 Greenwood residents who were impacted by COVID-19. United Way of Johnson County provides funding for 18 health and human-service agencies and seven direct programs in Johnson County. The organization is responsible for looking at the needs of the community, raising funds and allocating those funds appropriately.

 

Our Lady of the Greenwood (OLG) Food Pantry was awarded $20,000. The food pantry is staffed by volunteers and open from Tuesday to Thursday each week. With the funding, Our Lady of Greenwood will serve 10,000 additional individuals. In partnership with Gleaners Food Bank, OLG will host their next Mobile Food Pantry Drive-Thru this Thursday, July 16 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. The Gleaners Mobile Food Pantry Drive-Thru is open on the third Thursday of every month during those hours.

 

“Johnson County and Greenwood are lucky to have nonprofits that give so much back to our community on a regular and consistent basis,” said Greenwood Mayor Mark W. Myers. “In times of need, it’s especially rewarding to help organizations with staff who give so much of their own time and resources to the people in and around Greenwood.”
