Outreach centers preparing for summer program (Audio included)

The Logan County Neighborhood Outreach Centers are preparing for the summer months.

The centers conduct a ten-week summer program beginning on June 4th. The program contains many activities like neighborhood cleanup/helping neighbors, summer reading/tutoring, field trips (pool, bowling alley, movie theater, and the Ohio Caverns), arts and crafts, and mentoring.

The most valuable thing the centers provide is the summer food program funded through the United Way. The program provides children with a healthy lunch for free. Over the weekends a backpack with food is sent home with children. Last year, 1,600 lunches were served across the three outreach centers. A total of 475 weekend backpacks were sent home with kids last year.

The outreach centers are always looking for volunteers and donations. The donations can be monetary, material, or food.
