GVCO Carings Hands Works With the Local Business Community To Provide Support
 
This past month our student led GVCO Caring Hands group teamed up with a local business to provide support to our local senior community. Stong Plumbing and Heating in Malvern stepped up and donated $500 to our 501(c)3 non-profit GVCO organization, a contribution dedicated to directly support seniors in our district. GVCO Caring Hands promptly matched that gift and continues to provide it's financial commitment to supporting those in need right here in our community.
 
Thank you Stong Plumbing and Heating for partnering with our GVCO Caring Hands. Once again an example of how our district's generous business community, along with our Great Valley Community Organization, partnered for the greater good here at home.
GVCO Project Update
The Spring Thaw Has Finally Begun!

As we move into March, the snow begins to melt, things begin to to turn green and (with luck) the ground begins to dry out. The hope is that GVCO will be "putting a shovel in the ground" in the coming weeks getting the new GVCO Commuity Center project started.
 
Also beginning in March, there will be a concerted effort with our capital campaign; renewing our efforts to get us over the hump with the necessary fundraising allowing us the ability to obtain the financing critical to complete the project.
