A HUGE Thank You to all who made the Blue Jean Ball a Success!
Special Thanks to Marcy Schell and Jennifer Grobe for heading the committee. Thanks to the the MANY parents who donated time gathering donations, preparing baskets, setting up the hall. Also, thanks to all of the families who donated auction items. And last, thank you to the team members who helped set up and sold raffle tickets that night. To top it off, it was a super fun evening with lots of friends and community support. The band, the beverages, the BBQ, the donuts! Looks like we made approximately $21,000 and we couldn't do it without you! Thank you to all and have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

GV Caring Hands & Cradles to Crayons Donation Drive
Thank you to the entire GVCO community!

Our first collaboration between GVCO Caring Hands Foundation and Cradles to Crayons exceeded all expectations and was a tremendous success!

In addition to a truckload of diapers, clothing and shoes for the children, we had numerous volunteers who promoted the drive within their GVCO programs, volunteered their time collecting donations and helped with organizing and fund raising.

We look forward to an ongoing partnership with our two organizations.
