McGuffey Center receives Community Impact Grant

The Home Depot Foundation provided a Community Impact Grant to the McGuffey Center.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Volunteers from the Home Depot in Boardman headed out to make a difference Friday.

While the volunteers work at the Home Depot in Boardman, they’re part of a larger cause, the Home Depot Foundation that supports community improvement opportunities. Friday, the McGuffey Center in Youngstown received a Community Impact Grant from the foundation.

“The things we are doing here at McGuffey Center and our plans for the future will include brightening up the place, lightening it up to cause it to look good for the community to come in and do more programming and community events,” said Reverend Willie Peterson, interim executive director, McGuffey Center.

The Home Depot Foundation also helps veterans in need. More information on Community Impact Grants is located on the foundations website.
