Calm Supply donates needed supplies to Empowering Program

Mike Swiger, owner of Calm Supply, LLC, donates a 1,000 count case of 8-oz cups, plus drinks and snacks, to the Empowering After School Program.
GREENVILLE – “Do you have a place you can store a 1,000 ct case of 8-oz cups?” asked Carrie Swiger, a parent whose child attends the Empowering Darke County Youth After School Program. The answer was yes, and a couple days later, her husband, Mike Swiger, delivered the cups, plus drinks and snacks.

“Our daughter really likes this program,” Swiger said. “We appreciate it and wanted to help out.” The supply of cups will take the After School Program at Edison Darke County Campus through the rest of the year and into the 2017-18 school year.

Swiger owns Calm Supply, LLC, in Greenville. Established in 2014, the business supplies “affordable products” to its customers with quality supplies, convenient and reliable delivery. It includes a range of products, such as: toiletries, cleaning chemicals, janitorial equipment, pool chemicals, and more.

“Supplies for daily snacks is an ongoing need,” said Bob Robinson, Empowering program coordinator. “Our kids arrive from school hungry! They will easily go through 5-6 gallons of juice and 15-20 packages of snacks every week. We really appreciate the support we’ve received from the community and the parents of the students we work with.”

Empowering’s After School Program, started in September, has helped over 70 students. Its Summer Tutoring Program served 43 students last summer and is currently enrolling students for Summer 2017.

Empowering Darke County Youth is a 501c3 community service organization. Its Mission, as adopted by its Board of Directors: “Empowering Darke County Youth provides After School and Summer Tutoring programs to assist students in the areas of language arts and math with the goal of Strong Students for a Strong Community.”

Empowering’s services are free and can only exist with community support. If you would like to help with donations, snacks and supplies, or volunteer service, go to the Empowering Darke County Youth Facebook page, or email: empoweringdarkecountyyouth@gmail.com.
