Help us Help our Neighbors

Have you seen the “Giving Gracious Groceries” Box, yet? Our Youth Leadership Council (YLCs) wanted a means to help our neighbors with groceries. With funding from Youth Service America and the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation, they were able to secure funds to build a box that debuted to our neighbors at the beginning of July. 

Now, we need your help to keep it full, and there are several different ways you can do that.

Project REBUILD’s Schedule due to COVID-19

Updated 7/29/2020

Our program continues to operate with a hybrid model of online and in-person training. Policies and practices continue to be in effect that comply with social distancing, face coverings, temperature taking, and regular sanitizing. We are also complying with Governor DeWine’s travel advisory and asking all staff and members to report on recent travel. We continue to work with our local health department and ensure compliance with all federal, state, and local advisories.

Again, while we’d love to see all of you, we still respectfully ask that if you are not actively involved with our program you continue to refrain from visiting. You are welcome to reach us via phone, email, or social media. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call the office.

Have you ever wondered how you can help Project REBUILD students? There are several ways and here’s one of them… Be a Mentor! 

Project REBUILD is launching a new mentoring program for our students, who are 16-24 years old. We are looking for mentors to connect with our students for 1- 5 hours each week.

You can be a mentor.

You can change a student’s life.

As a mentor, you can change the direction of your young person’s life by merely being present.
You can expand your networking and professional skills by joining our mentor network.
Coaches, teachers, and co-workers have mentored you. Now you can pass it on.
Your skills, experience, and friendship will help a young woman or man become ready to succeed in the workforce or in college. All of our mentoring will be structured activities at convenient times for your schedule.
Contact the office at  (330) 588-3205, option #2 or jjames@projectrebuild.org for more information.
