Thank you again for your commitment and support towards the Christmas Toy Store program
by Terri Rogers
Executive Director, Loveland Initiative
On December 19, 2014 The Loveland Initiative held its 17th Annual Christmas Toy Store program. One again the community has come together in a big way with 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 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 scholarships to Loveland graduates in August of this year.
As you know, we are committed to making life better for families in the Loveland community. 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 to our organization has helped to continue the important work to achieve our mission; which is to provide educational support and assistance to under-served children and their families.
Many thanks to our donors — Loveland City Schools, Saint Columbian Church, Tina Pickle – Loveland Zumba Gold, Epiphany United Methodist Church, Miami Trails Neighborhood Network, General Electric Credit Union, Fraternal Order of Eagles Loveland #3c, Jay and Andrea Batchelor, Union Savings Bank, Anytime Fitness, CoCo Bites, Loveland Moose Lodge, LCNB, Loveland Area Chamber of Commerce, Bond Furniture, McNett family and many others. We also thank our hard working volunteers who participated in the event.
