This app does not serve as a replacement for emergency services—in any situation where you feel that you may be at risk, please dial 911 or your local emergency number.
GRIT offers practical advice, product reviews, livestock guides, gardening, cooking and other do-it-yourself information, humor and the inspirational stories of folks who moved to the country and love it. Each issue covers topics related to country living, land management, wildlife, gardening, livestock or pets, skills and techniques, seasonal food, community, machinery or tools, and lifestyle events.
Today’s GRIT is an upbeat rural title just as it has been since 1882. The magazine is more focused now than before, without being the news piece it once was and that many folks warmly remember. GRIT has evolved from that venerable and respected newspaper to a sophisticated full-color magazine. We still have the same values: Community, Family, Positive Outlook and Sharing. Several departments from the original GRIT have been retained, and, in its new form, the magazine is the perfect companion for folks looking to get the most out of country living.

Range is a free mobile app that locates the time and place where free meals are served to youth this summer and where families can find the nearest public library. Download Range to locate the nearest sites and get directions, share information via text or email, and learn about key services the site offers.
*Update 6/3/15: Range is useful during the summer months only (May-August).
During the school year, youth are served meals at the school cafeteria, but during the summer months only 1 in 6 who eat lunch at school take advantage of free programs when school is out. If you work with youth or interact with families in need, use Range to increase visibility to the neighborhood sites that provide this crucial service. Summer meal programs provide free meals to youth 18 and under in your community when school is out.Tell others about Range —librarians, clergy, social workers, physicians, parks and rec counselors—and how they can help families find free meals this summer.
As part of providing services to youth, Range also locates all public libraries in the U.S. Refer youth and families to public libraries for programs, a good book, and a safe place.
Data from USDA powers Range to locate reliable sources of healthy and free meals, and data from IMLS census data locates public libraries.
If you’ve used Range, please take a few moments to let us know how you used it: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/B72DGR9
Here’s how 4Bells works:
1. For the requesting group or organization
• The organization or group signs up for an account via the app, including establishing a series of criteria or categories for their volunteers.
• They instruct volunteers to download the app and connect using a specified connection code.
• Once they have connected volunteers, the organization can send out opportunity alerts for specific tasks that the volunteers can review and consider claiming by logging in to the app and viewing additional details (e.g., location, specific time requirements) added by the organization.
• Organizations can track the status of tasks (e.g., claimed, completed, returned) and resend an opportunity alert if needed.
2. For the volunteer
• Once the volunteer has been trained and accepted by the organization, they receive a connection code from the organization. At that point, the volunteer can download the app and use the code to connect to the organization.
• The volunteer signs up to receive appropriate volunteer opportunity alerts based on their skill and engagement level.
• When the organization sends an opportunity alert, the volunteer receives a push or text message that there is an opportunity to volunteer.
• They can log in to the app to view additional details and can then decline, claim, or sign-up as an alternate for the volunteer opportunity.
• When they complete the task, they can mark the opportunity as completed.
• If they are unable to complete the opportunity, they can return it and notify the organization or group that another volunteer is needed.
