Push Against Poverty is a tested and proven winner and the creation of CSU freshman Daniel Graves, who developed the program while a high school student in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. Now at CSU, Graves is bringing the program to the city of Cleveland and has rallied the support of numerous city, county and state officials along with the University’s administration.
With few operating funds but the gritty determination of Graves and a handful – so far – of volunteers, Push Against Poverty promises to establish a network of support for those in need in many ways.
For additional information, contact Daniel Graves at 216.287.6965 or Carl Pantejo (Grassroots Coordinator): firstname.lastname@example.org.
