Gaston Residential Services is competing in the Community Foundation Run on April 14th in downtown Gastonia.  This event is a way to support the nonprofit community.  The Foundation matches a percentage of the funds that are donated to the participating individual nonprofit groups.   The Community Foundation’s Run is a great opportunity to stretch every dollar contributed!

The funds raised in previous years from this event have assisted in developing job opportunities for people with disabilities, contributed to the purchase of an accessible van, and provided funeral expenses for people without family support. 

Due to cuts in funding in recent years, the people served by GRS are at risk of further reductions in supports and services. 

We would like to ask for your support this year so that GRS can continue providing supports that affect the quality of life for people in our community.

All gifts must be made before 5:00 pm, Friday, April 20th.

Online donations can be made at

If you prefer to write a check, we have enclosed, for your convenience, a donation form for you to return with your check made payable directly to the Community FoundationPlease send your check directly to:
