Several weeks ago the Lake County, Ohio chapter of End 68 Hours of Hunger presented to the Young Leaders of United Way of Lake County. They had $5000 to allocate to various nonprofits within Lake County. The campaign, running from January until April, was comprised of six program sessions, complete with various on-site visits, allowing 21 students from 10 local high schools to determine which of the 19 total programs from 10 nonprofit agencies to fund —the funds allocated are from its budget.
The students ultimately chose Lake County Free Clinic and End 68 Hours of Hunger to receive the allotment of $5,000, we received $1000!
Thank you to these amazing students for recognizing the work that our program does to help combat hunger in Lake County. We are so grateful to you!
