The Dublin Foundation has awarded 40 Plus of Central Ohio a grant for the purchase of office equipment that will assist the growing number of 40 Plus members who are searching for employment.

An all-volunteer nonprofit organization, 40 Plus has assisted thousands of central Ohioans in finding employment since its 1982 founding in Columbus.

More than 180 Dublin residents have been served by 40 Plus, according to its records.

As the economic downtown continues, 40 Plus is facing a surge in membership, and updated equipment is needed for member training and job searching. Replacement of outdated computer systems will provide assistance in the service for its members and improve overall productivity.
