Champions for Children
The Golf Club at Yankee Trace 10000 Yankee St, Centerville, OH
You are invited to join us for our first annual Champions for Children fundraising breakfast. At Hannah’s Treasure Chest, we provide so much more than the distribution of necessities for children in need. We prioritize the health, safety, and dignity of each child we serve and give them the opportunity to feel seen and valued with every item chosen just for them.
HTC is the only organization in Southwest Ohio that freely distributes all the items a child might need to grow and thrive from birth to adulthood. Through our 70 community partners, we meet caregivers where they are and support them during difficult times as they work to secure their families. As the need increases in our community, HTC’s dedicated volunteers and staff remain unwaveringly committed to serving vulnerable children in Southwest Ohio. We invite you to join us and become a Champion for Children.
Register here, tickets $50
