Donation Drives

Thank you to everyone who has participated over the last year in our donation drives. We had great success supporting a variety of different organizations here in Central Ohio. We greatly appreciate your participation.

For the 3rd quarter of 2019, we decided to forgo doing a donation drive. The main reason for this is because of our Pack Shack party and our requests to support this initiative. However, if you are still looking for ways to give back, here are some ways you can do so!

DONATIONS

• NBC4 is already working on their Stuff the Backpack initiative for the upcoming school year. Last year, with their partners they collected over 50,000 backpacks for children in Central Ohio. Learn how you can help by visiting: https://www.nbc4i.com/stuff-the-backpack/

• Nationwide Children’s Hospital is accepting donations of gently used and new children’s picture book and board books for their waiting areas. If you are interested in donating, please visit their website at https://www.nationwidechildrens.org/giving/ways-to-give/reach-out--read/make-a-donation

• Faith Mission shelter has a variety of needs to help operate their shelter on a continuous basis such as cleaning products, personal hygiene items, and housing items. A full list of their needs and their Amazon wish list can be found at https://lssnetworkofhope.org/get-involved/wishlists/#1484949527297-c1e4042e-d735
