Volunteering time, talents, and treasures are three t-lettered words Grandview Bright Futures, or GBF, aims to encourage. GBF is a non-profit organization that meets the basic needs of students with community resources and donations.
During its annual ‘100 Ways Community Breakfast’ city leaders, civic groups, faith-based organizations, and district administrators were invited to come together and learn how they can pledge their time, talents, and treasures to students in need. The breakfast encouraged 100 ways volunteers can sign up to mentor, raise money, donate supplies, and more for Grandview C4 students.
“Volunteers have an enormous impact on the villages that they work and live in. You don't have to spend the day in a school or hours organizing a clothes closet, take your 30 minute lunch break to help at a school. Volunteers touch the lives of those they serve in numerous ways,” said Karla Harris, GBF Co-Coordinator.
The breakfast was a way to inspire partnerships between community organizations and the district to work together to serve students. Grandview Bright Futures will also be involved in the 2015 Bicycle Rodeo that will take place April 4th at Grandview High School, April 18th at Belvidere Elementary, and May 16th at Butcher Green Elementary.
