Samtec Cares grant will provide mental health services to students
A $35,000 grant from Samtec Cares is helping Greater Clark County Schools expand mental health services to students.
The Samtec Cares Grant Program was created to positively impact and assist charitable organizations within the communities where Samtec employees live, work and play. The money awarded to Greater Clark will help provide more counseling and therapy options to students while they are in school.
“With the onset of the pandemic, we’ve seen a greater need for mental health services with our students,” said Dr. Kim Hartlage, Deputy Superintendent at GCCS. “This generous grant from Samtec Cares will allow us to offer services at no cost to more students in need during school hours. By providing this care during the school day, we are helping these students and their families overcome barriers they may encounter that may prevent them from getting regular treatment and services.”
Samtec Cares granted over $510,000 during the Winter 2020 Grant Cycle, including the Greater Clark grant.
