Pam is a resident of Wadsworth. She is married to Mark (28 years in November), and they have two children: Zack, a student at OSU and Emily who will be entering OSU in the Fall.
The Grucza's are longtime members of Wadsworth United Methodist Church (one of our Participating Churches). Pam has proven her heart for the gospel and for the poor through years of faithful service to her church and to her community. She has been a part of the Outreach team at Wadsworth UMC for many years. In fact, we first met Pam when she organized our May Love Op in 2013. Under her leadership, the Wadsworth Church, donated close to 2,000 rolls of toilet paper to help us start our Personal Care Pantries. She has also actively served as a volunteer for FISH in Wadsworth. Much of her experience with serving clients and working with community agencies comes from her FISH experience.
Pam graduated with a BS degree from Michigan State University and with a MS degree from The University of Connecticut (UCONN). She loves music and exercise. She sings in the Wadsworth Community Choir, the Church Choir (Soprano), and she also directs a bell choir of 3rd through 8th graders. For exercise, Pam is a prolific Jazzercize practitioner.
It is clear to us that Pam has a servants heart. I hope you will all pray for her as she orients herself to her new responsibilities. When doors close in ministry, God seems always ready to open up new doors of opportunity. We are truly excited that Pam walked
through that door. We are blessed to have her on our Love INC team.
