ALLIANCE, OH- The Regula Center at Mount Union recently received grant funding for Make a Difference Day from ServeOhio. Funds will be used to expand offerings of Raiders Cove beyond the current capacity and mobilize volunteers throughout the City of Alliance on October 22.
Granting funds to the University, according to ServeOhio, requires that ServeOhio be recognized as a sponsor in all publicity regarding the event.
"A logo for this purpose is attached. Additionally, all grantees are required to post project updates leading up to and/or during the MADD project on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter. Grantee must tag @ServeOhio in all posts and use the hashtags #ServeOhio and #MADD22," added ServeOhio.
Funding will create spaces where customers can take free books, hygiene items and snacks as they wish, and donors can leave items to support Raiders Cove.
“The take what you need, leave what you don’t model has worked in other areas and we are excited that this funding will allow us to pilot it in two new spaces to better serve the community,” shared Regula Center director Abby Schroeder.
The Center will formalize these two spaces and work on other projects throughout the community from 10a.m.-noon on October 22. The projects are open to the entire community and participants should sign up at www.mountunion.edu/community-service
