Ingevity gives $27,000 to Family Resource and Youth Service Centers
WICKLIFFE, Kentucky, October 1, 2019 – For the second year in a row, Ingevity presented checks totaling $27,000 to school-based Family Resource and Youth Service Centers (FRYSC) in western Kentucky. This donation helps academically at-risk students by providing vital programs and services unique to the needs of students and their families.
“Lack of food and clothing hinders students from learning,” said Mike Strohm, plant manager, Ingevity. “We’re happy to provide funds to alleviate this concern for many students.”
“We have many projects to help students and families remove barriers to learning in Graves County and the need keeps getting larger every year,” said Jean Ann Miller, director of Graves County Middle School Youth Services Center. “Without generous contributions like this, we would not be able to do nearly as much. We really appreciate Ingevity’s corporate citizenship in our community.”
FRYSC serves children at elementary, middle and high schools by providing preschool childcare, afterschool daycare, family literacy services and family training programs. Of the funds donated:
- Hickman County FRYSC received a check in the amount of $5,000 on April 26.
