THOROFARE, NJ -

The United Way of Gloucester County has announced that nine local nonprofit agencies in the community will benefit from “Live United” mini grants.

These grants are for nonprofit organizations that provide services to Gloucester County residents. The funds were generated by the members of the Live United 365 Small Business Circle, an initiative that launched last November.

“The mini grant program offers funding support beyond the traditional United Way allocations process and responds to community need,” said Michael Gower, Executive Director of the United Way of Gloucester County. “We are thrilled that the Live United 365 Small Business Circle is growing to raise even more funds for mini grants.”

The recipients of the 2018 “Live United” mini grants are the Boys and Girls Clubs of Gloucester County’s Project Precious Cargo, Clarifi’s Financial Smarts workshops, Emmanuel Cancer Foundation’s gas station and supermarket gift card assistance program, Greater Woodbury Cooperative Ministries’ food pantry, Lauren Rose Albert Foundation/Mothers Matter’s “Comfort” Gift Bags, Partners in Learning’s Ready, Set, Move initiative, People for People Foundation’s Veteran Rapid Response assistance program, SHADOW Equestrian’s “memory book” project for special needs riders, and the South Jersey Dream Center to obtain barcode scanners to help with the processing procedure for the food and clothing distribution efforts.

“I love that my company can support great projects for people in our community through the 365 Small Business Circle,” said Lisa Carney, President of Lisa Carney Retail Agency in Woodbury. “It was an easy decision to sign up for the program to help make more mini grants available in the area.”

Members of the 365 Small Business Circle also include Graphics Solutions, Bellia Print and Design, Clear Path by Cindy, Nancy Kowalik Real Estate Group, HFM Investment Advisors, Telecorp Inc, Cipriani Remodeling Solutions, Cepha Inc, 13th Child Brewery, Death of the Fox Brewing Company, PCH Technologies, Botto’s Italian Line, Graham Communication, New Age Powder Coating, TummyTee, and ASL Transportation Group.
