Opportunities for Kindness
Neighborhood Bridges- Lebanon and The Women’s centers of Ohio- Lebanon have teamed up to bring holiday cheer and awareness to our community. We’re participating in a local initiative to bring awareness to charities by creating holiday vignettes throughout the community; Neighborhood Bridges- Lebanon and the Women’s Center Lebanon will be creating a holiday display to be viewed by the public at the Women’s Centers Columbus Ave. location. Neighborhood Bridges is all about scale. The more families, residents, businesses and service organizations that we have enrolled or engaged in our program, the more capacity for kindness that we create. We’re asking for your help to create these holiday displays by donating LED light stands that we can use to decorate a holiday vignette to bring awareness to who and what Neighborhood Bridges- Lebanon is.
The holiday display will be live from November 27th- January 1, 2021. Once completed we will share information on how you can view and help promote our holiday display. We can accept new or used- but working LED light strands. If you don’t have light strands to donate, but would like to help us create this holiday display you can make a financial donation here: https://secure.1stpaygateway.net/secure/custompayment/neighborhoodbridgeslebanon/13284/default.aspx?

There is a young woman and her boyfriend who moved back from out of state a month ago to help her mother and also found out she is pregnant a few days ago. The couple recently obtained employment but the mother had surgery a coupl months ago and is still out from working, she has exhausted all vacation and sick time. They both had vehicles but both have stopped working weeks apart.
The couple NEEDS to keep their jobs to help her mother financially until she gets back to work and now also to save money for their growing family. They have been getting rides to and from and also used Uber but they need to be focusing on saving money for an apartment to bring baby home too. Do you have a used car you could donate to this family in need?
Please help this family!!

"Get out of my dreams and into my car" (Billy Ocean) Can you help a young adult get into their car so she can chase her dreams?
We are partnering with a local community agency to support a college aged student who has aged out of the system and with all the "drive" and determination is now the proud owner of a Bachelor's degree. This young adult now has an awesome opportunity to follow their dreams out of state to complete an internship that will help them work towards their goal of graduating. Unfortunately, they they have only one thing holding them back, no reliable transportation. We're hoping the Lebanon community can pull together and help this young adult become a Lebanon success story!
Life is a highway and this young adult is on the road to success. They have saved some money to put towards reliable transportation but still needs a little extra support. We don't need anything fancy, just as long as the vehicle is reliable! Help us purchase a used, very cheap, but reliable vehicle for this person in need.
If you are "driven" to help please donate funds here.

Calling All Angels !!!!!!! Are we ready for some Christmas !!!!!!!!!
It's the most wonderful time of the year and we are calling all angels (or at least 50) to spread their giving wings and help us provide Christmas to children in need.
Christmas in September??? It's never too early to help a family that may need a little extra support and we are excited to partner with The Giving Angels Program that will provide Christmas toys and clothing items for families in need.
A donation of $10 will sponsor 1 child between the ages of newborn and age 12. Each child will receive 2 gifts of clothing and 2 gifts of toys. In addition to the gifts for the children the family will also receive a family gift such as cleaning supplies, hygiene items, kitchen supplies etc.
Our goal is to sponsor 50 children and spread kindness like snowflakes.
