GM Community Back to School Drive

Presented by:  Onward Together GMLS

Onward Together GMLS  is building a team and resources beyond the boardroom to further equitable education, community resources and opportunities for our students and families.  This Community Group is lead by Groveport Madison Local Schools Board Members LaToya Dowdell-Burger and Seth Bower.  

Last year they launched their inaugural Groveport Community Back to School Drive with various community partners.  In 2021, We were able to support 115 Groveport Madison Schools students with filled backpacks. In addition, we collected enough supplies to provide Groveport Madison Local Education Association with extra supplies for teachers who have students in need.  

Our 2021 partners:  

  • Eastgate Assembly of God   

  • Columbus GospelFest

  • M.O.R.E. Inc.

  • CarolineINSPIRES


  • La Ti Do Music Co.

  • Beyond the Bench

  • Affinity Memorial Chapel

  • The Real Lady Xtreme

  • Columbus Division of Fire 

  • Independence Block Watch

  • The Food Solider
