Buy a snowman, help a family

snowman-2It takes a village to build a snowman, and Northwest Ohio is joing together to do just that. This year we are beginning our “Snowman Campaign” on January 27 through March 19, 2016, Together We Can Make A Difference Initiatives is accepting donations to purchase snowballs to help families in need. These snowballs will be grouped together to build snowmen, which will be on display in our window at 722 North Perry in downtown Napoleon. Together We Can Make A Difference Initiatives accepts and provides personal care and toiletry items such as: toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, laundry soap, toilet paper, feminine hygiene products and diapers to families in need of assistance throughout Northwest Ohio.

Join us in making a positive difference in the community by making a contribution to help us build snowmen:

$5 (the head) can provide diapers for a baby

$10 (the middle) can provide the day-to-day essentials for up to three people

$15 (the base) can provide essentials for a family of four, and

$30 for the entire snowman.

“I believe that by helping one person at a time, we can make a positive impact in Northwest Ohio,” said Kelli Burkhardt, Executive Director of Together We Can Make A Difference Initiatives.

Together We Can Make A Difference Initiatives is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible.

For more information, call (419) 579-0199 or email togethernwoh@gmail.com or mail donation to: Together We Can Make A Difference Initiatives, P.O.
