    2013 Spread Some Good - Ohio AARP

    AARP Drive to End Hunger Cincinnati, Ohio - From September 4th through 17th, customers of Walgreens stores can make a donation to "Spread Some Good" through AARP Drive to End Hunger, which promotes awareness about the serious problem of senior hunger. Donations will benefit Wesley Community Services Meals On Wheels and tri-state area pantries and shelters.

    Nationally, more than 8 percent of households that include someone 65 or older can’t put enough food on the table at some point during the year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

    Customers in all 252 Ohio Walgreens stores can donate money to “Spread Some Good” at the checkout counter. Money raised in a community will be used to buy peanut butter for pantries and shelters in that same community, said Jane Taylor, state director for AARP Ohio.

    Wesley Community Services receives $10,000 grant from health insurer Humana

    Humana honored three distinguished non-profit organizations at its 2009 annual Greater Cincinnati Benefits Celebration Gala at Kingsgate Marriott Conference Hotel at the University of Cincinnati on September 16, 2009.

    The 2009 Greater Cincinnati Benefits competition was extremely competitive with three finalists selected from approximately 90 non-profit agency applications. The three finalists were those projects that make a substantial difference in the "Mind, Body and Spirit" of the Cincinnati community. The three finalists were Wesley Community Services, ProKids, and Stepping Stones Center.

    Wesley Community Services won $10,000 and was the "Body" winner. Wesley's grant will go toward the Project TEAMWORKS program to streamline and improve the quality of services to nearly 3,000 seniors and disabled individuals receiving 250,0000 Meals-On-Wheels and over 34,000 Specialized Medical Transports annually by utilizing technology available through mobile computing devices (MCDs) to transform the organization's ability to record, track and document services. "The use of these tools and the advances in data processing will greatly improve Wesley's ability to respond to the needs of our clients," said Stephen Smookler, Executive Director.

    Stepping Stones Center was the "Mind" winner and was awarded $100,000 to expand Stepping Stones' Step-Up education program for local, school-age children affected by autism. ProKids was the "Spirit" winner and also received a $10,000 award.
