Big Birthday Bash For Providence House

It is time for the Big Birthday Bash for Providence House!

On Tuesday, April 28th, the Lakewood Kiwanis will have a birthday party to benefit the Providence House. The event will be filled with the hokey pokey, games, lunch, and a fancy birthday cake followed by a perfect rendition of the song Happy Birthday. Birthday presents are requested from the Providence wish list. The wish list can be viewed on the Providence House web site: www.provhouse.org.

The Providence House is Ohio’s first and one of the nation’s longest operating licensed crisis nurseries. Providence House offers emergency shelter and early child care services to infants and children, newborn to ten years old, children that are at risk of abuse or neglect, combined with award-winning parent education, mentoring and aftercare for the family. Their program is the only voluntary alternative in our community to the public foster care system for families striving to stabilize crisis, protect their children, and keep their families intact.

Lakewood Kiwanis is part of a global organization of volunteers dedicated to change the world one child and one community at a time. The birthday party for Providence House is one of the latest service project conducted by Lakewood Kiwanis. “Kiwanians” can be spotted all over town at various events. They are helping with holiday food baskets and working as volunteers at a variety of programs and community projects.

Kiwanis benefits from strong community support in their major fundraiser projects such as donut sales in the fall, selling hot dogs at all the community events, Spaghetti Dinner, Pancake Breakfast, and their famous January Pizza Bake-off.  All their efforts go directly back into the community.

Lakewood Kiwanis meets every Tuesday at noon at St. Clements Church Hall, 2022 Lincoln Ave (corner of Madison and Lincoln).
