This is one of the charities that the DWC supports. They are located in Mason and is a very small organization. It’s amazing that they do as much as they do. We will be presenting them a check to help with their efforts.
Here is a copy of their newsletter.
Look what you did!!
Your support in 2013 provided assistance to 66 kids!! That is a record number of kids helped in a single year by Building Blocks for Kids. BB4K and the families we have assisted cannot thank you enough!! To give you a better look at how we have helped them, here are some of the needs met:
- More than 540 hours of therapy were provided to 26 children
- Four (4) kids were provided with a communication device
- We assisted three children and their families with home modifications to make their homes more accessible
- Three families received wheelchair accessible vans and another received a lift to make their van accessible
- Five kids were given assistance so that they could attend Ohio Valley Voices for speech and hearing therapy
- And many other needs were met as well such as home therapy equipment, displacement costs so a child could get the help they needed away from home, specialized prescription formula, shatterproof eye glasses, and so much more!
We could not have done this without your support! We hope you’ll come celebrate with us at the Annual Event on March 1st (see sidebar) and that you’ll spread the word about Building Blocks for Kids.

Using your Kroger card is a quick and easy way to help Building Blocks for Kids. In 2013 we received almost $2000 from the Kroger loyalty program.

All you have to do is register your Kroger Card and pick Building Blocks for Kids as your charity. It is that simple! Kroger will do that rest. Below are instructions to register your card.

Touch a Truck – 2013
The 2013 Deerfield Township Touch A Truck as a huge success. We passed out balloons and water to families. The kids enjoyed climbing on all the Township’s trucks. What a great family event!!
Starting July 27, 2013, the Deerfield Women’s Club’s Community Yard Sale has a new home! We will be in the parking lot of the Fiducial Business and Tax office at 10000 Kings Auto Mall Road. The sale will be at the corner of Fields Ertel and Kings Auto Mall (across from Kings Toyota and Big Lots). The time will remain the same – from 9 to 12. Since our July sale was a rain out, all vendors wanting to sell in August will receive a $5 discount. Therefore, you will get a parking spot for $10. All proceeds will go to Building Blocks 4 Kids.
Come check out our new and exciting location!!!
Any questions, call Shelley at 513-489-0900.
