United Way Grants $5,700 to Carver Community Center

KOKOMO, IN / PRESS RELEASE – United Way serving Howard and Tipton Counties’ Board
of Directors has announced a $5,700 grant to help fund the Community Activities program
through Carver Community Center.

Donations given through the Annual Fundraising Campaign, both individually and through
workplace campaigns make this grant possible. United Way donors make it possible for Carver to offer a space that helps community members have fun and work on their health and wellness
goals.

“Community Activities at Carver Community Center are partially funded through money from
United Way,” said Dante Rogers, Carver Community Center Executive Director. “This financial
support allows us to provide programs like pickle ball, Bingo, line dancing, PiYo, Pound, and
more. Individuals can join us for pickleball on Monday, PiYo on Tuesdays, line dancing on
Wednesdays, and Pound on Thursdays for a full week of great exercise and fellowship!”

The Community Activities program offers individualized activities from physical fitness to
mental health. The program is working to partner with local organizations to bring educational
and health programming like meal prepping, budgeting, computer basics and end-of-life
planning in 2019.

“We are very thankful that our donors help fund a program that provides a space for community
members to learn, play and build relationships,” said Libby O’Brien, United Way’s Interim
Executive Director. “The Carver Center is a staple in our community and we love that they are
continuing to grow their programs and offer more opportunities for individuals and families to
learn and grow together.”
