Gateway Industries Inc. Receives Louise R. Lester Foundation Grant

operator No Comments

Healthy Meals and Snacks Project

Gateway, a private not for profit rehabilitation program serving disabled individuals in the tri-county areas of Greenbrier, Monroe, and Pocahontas, was recently awarded a generous grant from the Louise R. Lester Foundation. The Gateway program is designed to assess, train, and assist program participants with finding and retaining both independent and supportive employment opportunities in their communities, alongside of their non-disabled counterparts. Program participants unable to secure and retain work in the community are offered the chance to remain with Gateway and work and earn a modest income while receiving a host of supportive employment and socialization services. For this population, Gateway offers a new lease on life and break free from social isolation while becoming tax productive citizens vs. tax consumptive citizens, who can begin to integrate into the community at large.

The grant is earmarked to assist Gateway address a problem, (Food Insecurity) – not only impacting the individuals with disability (disabilities) that are served by Gateway, but also a problem that affects individuals from every walk of life. Although, it disproportionately impacts those in low socioeconomic groups. With the funding, Gateway will be able to purchase healthy meals and snacks for program participants when they are at Gateway and will also help to purchase food to prepare meals at home. The benefit to all is that with the introduction of good food, clients can remain focused on training and employment, without having to worry about where their next meal is coming from.

Through the assistance and generosity of the Lester Foundation, Gateway will continue to provide healthy meals throughout the funding cycle, while all other aspects of services will, continue without interruption. Gateway is deeply grateful to be able to address the issue of food insecurity and to provide healthy meals for this often-overlooked population of individuals, who want little more than the chance to be a contributing member of society.

Derby Day - Run for the Roses

Gateway Industries Cancels Annual Derby Day Fundraiser

operator No Comments

For the second year, Gateway is cancelling its traditional Derby Day Fundraiser. This event is always held on the first Saturday in May to celebrate and enjoy the Kentucky Derby “Run for the Roses.” The cancellation comes as a result of the continuing, however, improving COVID-19 pandemic.

It saddens us to miss yet another year of this long-celebrated event, which has become such a favorite tradition each year in Greenbrier and surrounding counties. However, we believe that it is best to be prudent regarding having such a large gathering, while the virus still lingers in our midst.

With the continued successful fight against Covid and the hard and much appreciated work of our health care workers, first responders and volunteers, we feel confident that we will be able to return to our longstanding fundraiser next May, and once again, share this special event with the hundreds of loyal Gateway supporters who turn out for a fun-filled evening of endless food, entertainment, and the ever-so-popular Derby Day Silent Auction.

Be well and we look forward to seeing you all again next year!
