Child Advocacy Center Service Project Opportunity

August 31st, 2013 | Posted by Ann Smith in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Child Advocacy Center Service Project Opportunity)

The Lebanon Optimist Club has an opportunity for a very easy “service project” connected with the Child Advocacy Center that we have supported for several years.

Each child that comes through the doors there for therapy, and  family assistance  is able to adopt a new stuffed animal from a selection at the center.  The stuffed animals are dwindling and the Center could use additional donations of new stuffed animals. We have an opportunity to help by collecting new stuffed toys to give to the Center.   Many  have donated financially and we will purchase items with that, but animal donations are more than welcome too. 

Look for sale prices, Kohls and Dollar Tree have stuffed animals available.  If you would like to donate, please bring it to the next Optimist lunch (Sept. 9) or drop it by my house (711 Holbrook Ave, Lebanon…behind the Columbus Ave. LCNB branch). Would love to have 75 to take to the Center!

Thanks so much
