GRIN currently is working beyond capacity and has faced limitations in physical space, staffing and volunteers, and financial resources. Answering the call for a community- based organization focused on serving local residents, the GRIN Board has taken a direct step to expand its capacity to serve by uniting purposes and resources.
The unification of these groups will bring together Stonybrook United Methodist Church’s clothing pantry, GRIN’s food pantry and financial assistance program housed at Mifflin Presbyterian Church and the Bridge's Summer Lunch Club. The combined organization also will incorporate a referral program to other Gahanna resources, such as furniture, financial planning and special needs support, and a benefits bank assistance program at the new site.
GRIN is using the following criteria in its search for a new location:
5000-7000 sq ft.
min. approx 20 parking spots
access for trucks to deliver goods (loading dock a plus, but not essential)
PRIVACY - secluded / out of view from traffic - to maintain the privacy of our clients
open layout is a plus
