DAYTON, OH – Staff and volunteers of local nonprofit Hannah’s Treasure Chest (HTC) will continue the tradition of “Hannah’s Day Out” for the fourth year in a row. This unique outreach program brings HTC together with four other area nonprofit organizations over the summer to tour and volunteer for a day.
Beginning at Centerville Washington-Township Park District (CWPD) on June 14, the HTC crew will work to clean up the area and make the great outdoors a better place to enjoy. The group will visit East End Community Services (EECS) on June 21 and Crayons to Classrooms (C2C) on July 19. Their final Hannah’s Day Out adventure will be with The Foodbank of Greater Dayton on July 26.

“Giving back to the community that has supported us for so long is a vital part of what Hannah’s Treasure Chest is about,” said executive director Sarah Williams. “These visits allow us to learn about other organizations and support each other, making it possible to improve life in our community.”
Williams began collaborating with area agencies in 2013 when representatives from organizations such as the Dayton Foundation and The Foodbank were invited to talk about their missions at HTC’s monthly volunteer luncheons. To date, Hannah’s Treasure Chest has hosted speakers from nearly 30 area partner agencies to discuss the enrichment of the lives of the children they serve.
“Each organization brings something new to the table. It is fulfilling for volunteers to learn how their work at HTC supports the missions of our partner agencies,” Williams stated. “Hannah’s Day Out gives them the opportunity to make a difference at these organizations in person.”
Hannah’s Treasure Chest partners with nearly 50 area organizations throughout the year to provide care packages of clothing, diapers, books, hygiene products and safety equipment to children living in need.
