Kiwanians implement Project Backpack

Pictured is Ottawa County Children's Service Department Representative Mindy Gallant (right) receiving the backpacks from local Kiwanian Vee Reifsnyder.

The Ohio Kiwanis’ Project Backpack provides backpacks to children in all 88 of Ohio's counties to Children's Service Departments for when children are removed from their homes on an emergency basis. Ohio District Kiwanis First Lady Cheryl Snellgrove has made this her year-long project. The backpacks are filled with personal items such as toothbrush, tooth paste, comfort bears, small blankets and other items, depending upon the need of each county.




Positive Office Referals reward Bataan students

Nora Bodie reads to Bataan Primary Principal Kendra Van Doren. Teachers
at Bataan Primary use “Positive Office Referrals” to reward students for
working hard in the classroom. The Positive Office Referrals vary from
reading a book to the principal to sharing a story they wrote. After the
sharing, they can choose a small gift. Each student then receives a note
to take home so parents know they are doing well at school.
