Grace Center, Inc is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization operating a food pantry for Clear Creek Township, Indian Creek Township, and Polk Townships. We also provide activities and events for these areas in order to facilitate community unity.
The Board of Directors for Grace Center, Inc. (GCI) includes:
In 2006, GCI received a grant from the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County to help this rural community area. The grant funds two separate missions: the Grace Food Pantry and GCI's community activity programs.
First the grant provided startup funds for Grace Food Pantry (GFP), which opened in late 2006. GFP currently operates on grant funds, but has a responsibility to gradually encourage the funding to be taken over by the community.
Second, the grant is making it possible to offer community programs and events to the entire community of Harrodsburg and surrounding areas such as Springville and Judah. The events take place at the Harrodsburg Community Center. Although the grant helps with general operating costs and materials, programs will depend on individual support to keep them going.
Finally, Grace Center, Inc. is not a faith-based organization. The word grace was chosen for all the many definitions of the word: timely help, good will, an act of kindness—there are so many. We hope that the word grace can inspire good will and kindness in the persons we serve and interact with during programs. GCI hopes to build strength and unity within the rural area that we serve.
We would also like to encourage you to sign up to volunteer for Grace Center in any way that you can help. We are always in need of volunteers and we appreciate your help! Thanks for stopping by!
