Outreach: How did the ISI-PT community impact the world beyond it’s walls in 2017?
- We were invited to encourage and inspire students at local schools here in the tri-state NewCath HS, Elder HS, Deer Park HS, Riverview East Academy, Mount Saint Joseph University, Western Hills HS, Turpin HS, Madeira HS, and Colerain HS to name a few.
- We led training sessions on site at Cincinnati’s Shelterhouse to serve men battling the day to day struggles of homelessness and drug addiction or mental illness.
- We hosted families from The Bethany House over the Christmas holiday to a night at Kenwood Towne Center where the kids got to build their own Build a Bear and the parents received $100 gift cards and we all sat down and broke bread together.
- And quite possibly the most amazing thing we did as a community in 2017 was provide complete Thanksgiving dinners (from the apps to the Turkey) for 64 families in our community. UNBELIEVABLE! You guys, we fed over 600 people! We deeply believe hat's something to be celebrated!
- On top of all that, we were able to contribute thousands upon thousands of dollars to organizations in our city that are doing amazing things to sharpen the world through disaster relief, ending child slavery, ending sex slavery, ending hunger, fighting cancer, and so much more.
