Long time local supporter The Parkersburg Area Community Foundation has awarded the Mid-Town Family Resource Center of Children's Home Society, Parkesburg site with a substantial grant in the amount of $11,000. Only $10K was requested, however the Foundation generously surprised the MTFRC with news of the $11K donation to support renovations and improvements to the CHS Community Center.
The MTFRC serves dozens of youth and families throughout the year via: the After School Program at McKinley Elementary, Summer Youth Program, food pantry and clothing closets for struggling families in crisis situations, and various other community projects throughout the year. The MTFRC is truly the backbone of this site’s CHS and is used for multiple other purposes including: playing host to the local Girl Scout Troop and 4-H Club, a gathering and meeting area for staff, employees and guests, as well as being utilized for assorted trainings etc.
The money will be put to good use to make some major improvements that have been necessary for quite some time now, including: new flooring, an electric stove, upright freezer, shelving, cabinetry, folding tables, and various comforts such as multi-use furnishings and a new television.
