Ernie Groover, President, and Tim Little, Treasurer, of the Monroeville Foundation presented a check to Nicole Henline, Director of the Monroeville Public Library, and Doug Webster, Treasure of the Friends of the Monroeville Public Library. The donation from the Monroeville Foundation was designated for the library’s Light Up the Library campaign.
The Light Up the Library campaign was launched by the Friends of the Monroeville Public Library to raise funds to update the 58-year-old lighting in the library. The donation from the Monroeville Foundation helped the library meet the campaign goal. The library can now take advantage of a program from Duquesne Light offering an energy efficiency discount for bulbs and equipment. Updating to the new bulbs will help the library save on annual energy costs and maintenance. The Monroeville Foundation was pleased to help reach this goal for our library!

Due to the Coronavirus and Pennsylvania’s guidelines of self-quarantining, wearing face masks, social distancing, etc. the Monroeville Foundation has decided to make the following changes to our planned schedule of events.
EXCERPT FROM TRIBLIVE 5/5/20
A Monroeville charitable organization was forced to cancel its largest annual fundraiser, so organizers launched a campaign to fund local efforts during the covid-19 pandemic.
Monroeville Foundation has set out to raise $5,000 for an emergency relief fund. The money would be available in the form of a grant to organizations impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, said Ernie Groover, the foundation’s board president.
“It’s a modest goal,” Groover said. “But it’ll certainly be easy to give that away.”
Groover said Tuesday the foundation has raised about $400 so far.
To apply for a grant, organizations are encouraged to do so through the foundation’s website, where individuals can donate as well.
Grant applications are vetted before being submitted as a recommendation for approval by the foundation’s board, Groover said. Organizations are asked to keep their grant requests at or below $2,500. Most grants are given in the $500 range, he said.
The Monroeville Foundation was pleased to partner with various organizations in the community to present a drive-thru Easter egg hunt for residents of the Monroeville community.
Volunteers handed out 200 backpacks filled with food, candy-filled eggs, school supplies, and a card game. Volunteers distributed all the backpacks in just 45 minutes!
Thank you to the following organizations for their generous donations.
Recently, the Monroeville Foundation donated $2,500 to the Forbes Trauma Unit. Forbes Hospital used the donation from the Monroeville Foundation to purchase new clothing for trauma patients. The new clothes purchased with that donation were able to help the victims of the recent devastating turnpike crash earlier this month. In an interview with the Post Gazette, Dr. Rabino of Forbes Hospital shared that about a month ago, the hospital received financial donations from the Monroeville Foundation, which allowed them to stock up on clean clothing for incidents such as this [turnpike] incident.
Forbes Hospital’s trauma unit received a $2,500 donation from the Monroeville Foundation on Friday that helped the hospital stock up on new clothes and activities for trauma patients.
Jesse Miller, a hospital spokesman, said patients often need new clothes after a visit to the trauma unit. When the Monroeville Foundation learned about the need, they donated $2,000 so the hospital could buy clothes to be handed out to patients.
