The Steuben Prevention Coalition (SPC) announced today that it has received the Edith Saxton Fund grant award through the Community Foundation of Elmira, Corning and the Finger Lakes, Inc. in the amount of $1,200.00. The Edith Saxton Fund for Steuben County Youth Services supports not-for-profit projects, programs, and organizations working to improve the quality of life of Steuben County youth.
This year one of the SPC goals is to create community action and change through educational awareness and community readiness. While our efforts to reach out to Steuben county youth and community members has seen progress and increased awareness, we still have a lot of work to do.
With these funds, the SPC will be hosting a Community Youth Awareness & Movie Night in July of 2020. We will be collaborating on this project with the Bath-Haverling High School Student group known as the Youth Action Forum students, the Dana Lyons Girls Group and the Steuben Council on Addictions just to name a few. There will be many youth serving agencies and organizations invited to participate to make this a fun filled and educational night for both our youth and our community members. Dinner will be served during a youth awareness health fair prior to the movie and popcorn will be served during the movie. A firm date will be announced as the event draws near so stayed tuned for details.
