Enriching the lives of children in need.
What We Do
While most families are fortunate enough to provide for their babies, toddlers, and children, many parents struggle in raising their children with sufficient resources. Hannah’s Treasure Chest responds to these needs by providing our partners throughout southwest Ohio with clothing, baby equipment, diapers, hygiene items, toys, books, and other essential items for their clients. The assistance from Hannah’s Treasure Chest greatly enhances programs already provided to children in need, thereby reducing duplication across agencies.
Our partners first determine the unique needs of each family, then request items from Hannah’s Treasure Chest by submitting a family profile with a checklist of needs. Our volunteers use those individualized requests to hand-select items from our warehouse to create care packages that reflect and respect the dignity of each child we serve. When a care package is complete, we notify the partner, and s/he then picks it up from us and delivers the items directly to the child in need.
In addition to daily care package fulfillment, Hannah’s Treasure Chest also administers additional programs. These include:
-Beds for Babies: provides free cribs and toddler beds to families
-Books for Babies: provides a new board book to up to 12 months
-Brighter Smiles Dental Kits: provides age-appropriate toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss/flosser to children 2 years and older
-Handmade for Hannah’s: provides children with items that have been handmade by community volunteers
–Giving Angels: provides each child with 4 holiday gifts, a gift for the family, and a gift card for a holiday meal
Who We Serve
Care packages are provided to the clients of our partners, who are typically families in our local area living at or below the poverty level. Receiving these items allows families in need to redirect their limited resources for other essential items such as food, housing, transportation, and education for their children and their families.
Our programs benefit and complement the services provided by our partners, freeing their staff members to focus on providing guidance and other needed care to the families.
How We Thrive
Hannah’s Treasure Chest is supported by in-kind donations from the community and financial donations from a variety of generous donors. Additional funding comes from fundraising events during the year along with monetary and in-kind donations, and overage sales through Shop Hannah’s. Grants and funding from foundations are a growing portion of our funding as well.
Hannah’s Treasure Chest relies on in-kind and financial donations from individuals, organizations, local businesses, and corporations. We gladly accept and appreciate donations of baby, toddler, and children’s items from parents whose own children have grown out of them, provided they are in excellent condition.
