“We’re broadening our horizons and our definition of how Hannah’s Treasure Chest fits into this community by reaching beyond our walls to help other agencies,” said executive director Sarah Williams. “Our volunteers have enjoyed learning how we impact organizations like Samaritan Behavioral Health and UCDRC (Urban Child Development Resource Center) during their visits. Now it’s time to go visit them and make a different kind of impact.”
Williams began this collaboration last year when she began inviting area agencies such as the Dayton Foundation and the Food Bank to attend the organization’s monthly volunteer luncheons and talk about their missions. In 2014, Williams focused in on the agencies that partner with Hannah’s Treasure Chest to enrich the lives of the children they serve.
“Volunteering is something we in the nonprofit world provide other businesses all the time. It makes sense we could benefit from it, too,” said Catherine Myers, Development Associate with Habitat for Humanity. “And, it’s a great way to develop strong partnerships with other NPOs.”
