We know that the last few years have been hard on families in Ohio.  With the economy, loss of COVID supplements and the higher costs of goods and services, many families are stretched thin.  This year we were able to identify a family in need and provide them with gifts for the holiday season.

Last week our team wrapped gifts for a family in need.  This is an opportunity we all love.  We get to play Santa and bring joy to the hearts of a worthy family in our our own community.

Before and after wrapping gifts for the Adopt-A-Family for 2023.
