We strive to meet the needs of Bexley community children and families through the allocation of community resources, funding of camp scholarships, and engagement in policy-making efforts to assure these groups have access to necessary resources.

We meet many different needs as they arise, but most often, we provide assistance with the following:

  • Scholarships for children to attend summer camp, enrichment and recreation programs
  • School needs, such as assistance with school supplies, pictures, tutoring, transportation, pay to play fees for sports, musical instrument rental and field trip fees
  • Clothing and/or furniture for families
  • Assistance with utilities, as a stop-gap measure
  • Bicycles, locks, helmets and bike licenses
  • Food and gift cards at holidays and other times of need
  • Connecting families with community services agencies for ongoing support
My little grandson and granddaughter would not get to have bikes if you did not give them to us. I use every penny to give them food, some clothes and the things they have to have at school. You are a blessing to me. Thanks.
