Jones v. Hastings

On Monday, January 13, Jones and Hastings Middle School faced off in their annual basketball rivalry game.  While Hastings walked away with the win this year, Heart to Heart was the real winner. All attendees were encouraged to bring a donation for the food pantry. In all, families were able to donate a total of 409lbs of food. We are grateful to everyone in attendance and those who participated in the food drive! Special thanks to athletic directors Logan Erwin and Michael Schaefer for coordinating the food drive.

Thank You

Yes, you read that right! In the last quarter of 2019, our church, friends and community donated a total of $47,070. Thank you so much for helping us surpass our goal with the most ever raised during this match period. With the anonymous donor’s contribution, this means we raised $67,070 for Heart to Heart in the short period between October 1 and December 31. We are humbled by your generosity and dedication to service.

ARC Volunteers

At ARC Industries, the mission is to help people with disabilities achieve their life goals. ARC does that by supporting individuals as they access the community where they live and work, helping them develop independence, self-advocacy and skills important to employment and community membership. Recently, ARC has been volunteering at Heart to Heart. Theresa, pictured here, especially likes to work with Susan Westbrook in the quilting room. The quilts are created by volunteers and quilters from Prayers and Squares. They are then given to new or expectant mothers who are clients at the food pantry.

Out of Office

As you may know, our director Lamar Graham is on vacation through February 1. He will be visiting Georgetown, Guyanna, and we look forward to seeing the photos when he returns. In the meantime, should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Amy Caskie, Missions Administrator at (614) 488-0681 Ext. 106.

The church is closed Monday in observance of Martin Luther King day. However, Heart to Heart is open for our typical volunteer shifts. We will also be visited by several students from Ohio State as they perform their annual Day of Service.

And what does the Lord
require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly
with your God?
Micah 6:8 NKJ

Our mission at Heart to Heart is to respond to God’s commandment to love one another.
Our vision of Heart to Heart is to model God’s love by:
Cultivating a loving community
Honoring individual gifts
Feeding bodies and souls
…and seeing everyone as a child of God
