In August 2016 we went to support McKinley Elementary School! During their annual Family Fun/Back to School Picnic (a school supply and free clothing give-a-way), the Big Reach Center of Hope provided a hot dog roast complete with lots of sides, drinks, and encouragement! We cooked over 250 hot dogs that afternoon. View the Family Fun Day online newspaper article here!

Also in August of 2016 we provided 50 snack bags to YSU for their iPals project that welcomes international students to Youngstown.  Read more about the iPal program here:             YSU thanked us by putting the Big Reach logo on all of the YSU iPal t-shirts this fall! We are hopeful this project made an impact on the lives of international students in our community.
