“We just completed our fourth year of Laundry Love in Salina. For a couple hours, the laundromat serves as a community center, where people can have someone to talk to and to help with their children. Thank you GSCF for helping to fund this program. We greatly appreciate your generosity toward us and our community!”

“Our camp was a story that needs told – kids in this county need to be exposed more often to STEM education IN OUR COMMUNITY and have it connected to local opportunity for work. Thank you for supporting our effort to create a camp model that will help us continue to connect with local kids and youth as well as involve our community in efforts to connect kids, adults, and job seekers to local jobs–in career readiness/exploration, and ultimately living and working here.”
