LOCAL NONPROFIT SWITCHES UP GIVING BACK FOR 3RD YEAR
DAYTON, OH — “Hannah’s Day Out” started out as a fundraising theme for local nonprofit Hannah’s Treasure Chest (HTC), but has now become the organization’s annual summer give-back concept.
Staff and volunteers from Hannah’s Treasure Chest will visit four nonprofits in the area to tour and volunteer, beginning with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Dayton on June 22. The group will visit Goodwill Easter Seals on June 29, Learning Tree Farm on July 13, and Clothes That Work on July 27.
“We are excited to continue our tradition of connecting with other area nonprofits in this way. Our volunteers are very involved in giving back, and these visits allow us all to learn about and then talk about other local organizations that are working to improve life in our community,” said executive director Sarah Williams.
Williams began building collaboration with area agencies in 2013 when she invited representatives from organizations such as the Dayton Foundation and The Foodbank to talk about their missions at HTC’s monthly volunteer luncheons. Since 2014, the organization has hosted speakers from more than 18 area agencies that partner with Hannah’s Treasure Chest to enrich the lives of the children they serve.
“Our volunteers have really enjoyed learning how their work at Hannah’s Treasure Chest supports the missions of our partner agencies,” said Williams. “Our Hannah’s Day Out adventures give our team a chance to go visit them and make a different kind of impact.”
Hannah’s Treasure Chest partners with 50 area organizations in Butler, Greene, Montgomery and Warren counties throughout the year to provide care packages of clothing, toys, books, diapers and safety equipment to children living in need.
