The newly formed Student United Way of Union County (SUWUC) began meeting last October and is off to a great start with representatives from Marysville High School, Marysville Early College High School, North Union High School, Fairbanks High School, and Jonathan Alder High School. The group meets bi-weekly with the intention to volunteer and help fund community projects through Union County and Plain City.

Some members of the group were able to meet for the first time in person in December to help volunteer at The Hope Center. The group of students plans on offering small grants for community service projects throughout Union County. We are excited to follow their progress and will begin featuring SUWUC member spotlights on our website, social media and e-newsletter!
