project: Exercise Kindness

Agency: Glen Ed Pantry
Location: Edwardsville, IL

Agency Overview:
The mission of the Glen-Ed Pantry is to obtain and distribute food to eligible individuals/families and refer services to people whose household income falls below 120% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. They also have seasonal programs to collect and distribute: Back-to-School bags, PE clothes, and shoe gift cards; Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets; and Christmas toys for children of our clients.


Project Details:
project AVA is proud to partner with the Glen Ed Pantry and introduce project: Exercise Kindness!
This project will provide funding for PE uniforms for 109 students in Edwardsville District 7 and 32 $25 gift certificates toward shoes.

The Glen Ed pantry wants their client’s children to be as well-prepared and comfortable for school as any other student. They will arrive, hopefully eager and excited, for their first day of the school year not feeling different or embarrassed because their family may have less to spend on shoes or clothing. We hope that by helping ease this seasonal financial burden, families are more able to meet their monthly budgets and our students are well-prepared for a great school year.

As always, we appreciate your support to help fund this, and other project AVA efforts in our communities.
