Grateful grant partners share impact ...

I Am Boundless: “One of our Boundless fundamental beliefs is “find a way.” The years 2020-2021 required our team to think outside of the box and find a way to continue serving our clients while many other service providers shut down during the pandemic. It was a challenge, but we faced it head on to help the people we serve continue to make both behavioral and academic gains. –Melissa Naegele, I Am Boundless

The Turban Project: "When there is a need, you have to respond with everything you have. We did this during the pandemic and every day. We helped thousands with the face masks and headwear to keep them safe! Always a gift of love freely given." -Kathy Braidich, The Turban Project

The Salvation Army of Newark: “The pandemic taught us just how much this community can rally around each other! Not only did we have a severe illness to go through, but two days later we had a devastating flood that destroyed major portions of our community.  We were blessed that we were able to continue to serve every single day, and thanks to our amazing donors and volunteers we were even able to expand into three other cities in the county during that time to meet the needs.” – Lt. Kaitlyn Haddix, The Salvation Army of Newark

Licking County Humane Society: "Titus found his ‘fur-ever’ home in October 2021. He came to LCHS through our humane agent program after being severely neglected, found outside in the middle of the heat in August tied up with a chain and unable to move. A boxer, he should have weighed around 70 pounds, but weighed just 46 pounds when we took him in. He was covered in dry mud, had scars and hair loss all over his body and was flea and tick infested. In the 2.5 months he spent in the care of our medical staff, Titus not only gained weight and energy, but he also learned to trust that there were humans who would love him." –Lori Carlson, Licking County Humane Society
