UW awards $3,500 grant to Right to Life of Shelby County


SIDNEY — The Shelby County United Way awarded a $3,500 Special Projects Grant to the Right to Life of Shelby County. The SCUW Special Project Grant monies will be used to support Right to Life’s Family Assistance Program. The program provides diapers, wipes, baby food and related items needed by families in Shelby County.

The demand for these items continues to increase. Requests for assistance has increased substantially due to rising costs in other areas such as gas, groceries and utilities. This program is supported by donations from Right to Life’s membership, local churches and this grant from SCUW. The thrift shop manager documents program requests and provides a report to the Right to Life board monthly on program results.

The mission of the Family Assistance Program is to allow struggling families to obtain personal items needed for their family. People in need can visit the Right to Life thrift shop at 102 E.
