On December 20, The Loveland Initiative held its 16th Annual Christmas Toy Store program. We received overwhelming toys, gifts and monetary funds towards this program during the holiday season. This program served well over 200 children. Our goal was to make sure that we raised enough funds to offer two scholarships which assist a student to further his or her education. Thanks to our generous supporters we have succeeded in reaching that goal; and will award two scholarships to Loveland graduates in August of this year.
The Loveland Initiative is committed to making life better for families whose lives are affected by poverty. We feel that one of the ways to empower people is through education and this is the way to break the cycle of poverty. With the assistance of our supporters, we have been able to make a positive impact on the lives of children and families in our community. Their generous support towards the organization has helped to continue its important work to achieve our mission; which is to educate and assist low-income children and their families.
