STANLEY––A good corporate neighbor is stepping in to help the Town of Stanley during a moment of need.
It’s the Stanley branch of the S.C. Johnson company. And according to a recent statement from the Stanley Town Hall, the company has bestowed a $50,000 grant upon the Town to support a local initiative to help the community during the ongoing State-mandated virus-related restrictions. The grant will provide funding for a program to assist those affected by said restrictions––many of whom have been without work and paychecks for several months now––with utility bills, groceries and supplies. The program is being administered by the Town of Stanley and a special committee to ensure that the funds are distributed to community members in need during these unprecedented economic times, according to Stanley Mayor Steven Denton.
Working together, Stanley Town Manager Heath Jenkins and Stanley Parks and Recreation Director Tug Deason developed the program to provide this critical assistance, as the mayor recently explained.
“The Town of Stanley is so fortunate to have a great corporate citizen,” said Denton, “who, during a national, state and local emergency, steps up and offers its assistance to those affected by COVID-19 (corona virus disease, 2019). We are very blessed to have S.C. Johnson, a family-owned company, in our community.”
