Thank you to The DuPage Community Foundation for awarding Outreach Community Ministries a $5,000 grant from its Snodgrass Family Fund! Outreach was one of 22 DuPage County not-for-profit organizations to receive a grant from the foundation’s 2014 Spring Community Needs Grant Cycle.

The grant was awarded during a special breakfast on June 10 at Glen Oak Country Club. At the event, Foundation Director of Programs Barb Szczepaniak shared her enthusiasm for local organizations. “Today is all about celebrating the great work each of you is doing in DuPage County and a celebration of our partnership together,” she said. “I truly enjoy the grant breakfast every year because it’s such an uplifting occasion – a day to remind us that we are collectively making a difference in our community.”

The grant will help underwrite Outreach’s Employment Opportunity Centers for young adults.
