Victory Project, a local non-profit organization working with young men in our community, is gearing up for students to spend more time in its programs.

In the summer, students spend more time at the VP, often arriving at lunchtime rather than at the end of a school day. And with 50 young men participating in the summer programming, snacks and meals are always a necessity!

Make a Difference readers and community members can help provide Victory Project with materials such as:

  • Boxed individual snacks
  • Ramen, mac and cheese or other simple lunches
  • Bottled Water Crates
  • Gatorade (bottles and/or drink mix)
  • printer paper
  • Toilet paper
  • Paper napkins
  • Clorox Wipes
  • 2″ white binders
  • carpet sanitizer
  • Kroger Gift Cards
  • Amazon Gift Cards

Additional materials and ways to support Victory Project are available at:

Donations can be dropped off 1-7 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Victory Project, 409 Troy Street, Dayton.

Victory Project can also use mentors and chaperones any weekday afternoon or evening; administrative help on weekday afternoons or evenings, and volunteers for small businesses from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. All positions require background checks and interviews. Depending on the role, volunteers follow a staff member or other volunteers to acclimatize.

Victory Project is funded solely by private contributions. To financially support Victory Project, go to or send a check to Victory Project, c/o Monnie Bush, 409 Troy Street, Dayton, Ohio 45404.
