On behalf of New Horizons Academy at Sara’s Garden, the Koo Koo Kommittee is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Take-Out Spaghetti Dinner Fundraising Event on Saturday, Feb 12, 2022. The purpose of this event is to raise funds needed to bring the group “Koo Koo Kangaroo” to our school for a concert in the spring for our students at New Horizons Academy Holland and New Horizons Academy Wauseon.

Staff and students of New Horizons Academy will provide all the labor for cooking, serving and cleaning up, while donations will make the meal possible along with all of the character-building and life skills opportunities that come from an event like this. We are proud to provide this opportunity to support our students and their activities at our school.

The money raised through this event will help defray the cost of the concert we are working to provide for our students, with any additional funds going into an account to use for future endeavors for our students.

We are excited to be planning this concert for an end of the school year activity for our students. We are asking for your financial support to help defray the cost of the spaghetti dinner and potential future student events. Your financial support or “in kind” donations will help New Horizons Academy and our students.

  • Date: Saturday, February 12, 2022 (Please have your orders in by Tuesday, February 8)
  • Pick Up Time: 5:00-7:00 p.m.
  • Location: NHA Career Center
  • Address: 854 S. Shoop Ave., Wauseon, OH 43567

EVENT HAS PASSED

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

It’s a simple idea: whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.

Register for #GivingTuesday419 today!

Registration for #GivingTuesday419 is open and will remain open until Nov. 15 or until we reach capacity, whichever comes first.

2020 #GivingTuesday419

2020 #GivingTuesday419

Like so many other things, #GivingTuesday419 this year has gone VIRTUAL!

#GivingTuesday419 is still all about giving back to the community, showing thankfulness and gratitude for what we do have, and sharing with those, who need it the most. That hasn’t changed. What has changed is the format for giving.

Instead of a single day of giving, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year, #GivingTuesday419 will be a five-day event. From November 29 through December 3, 2020, anyone may log onto Everence’s Giving Tuesday web site, register for the virtual program, and enter their favorite charity into a special giveaway or drawing. Donations may also be made directly to Sara’s Garden with Sara’s Garden tallying the numbers and updating Everence’s Giving Tuesday totals.

Through last year’s Giving Tuesday Event, we had almost reached our fundraising goal for our fully accessible playgrounds and multisensory areas in Wauseon and Springfield, SO OUR KIDS COULD PLAY! We were all SO excited to get the projects started, to expand the roof over our courtyard, pour the latex-vinyl flooring for safe, exploratory play, and create UNBELIEVABLE play areas for physical education, therapy, recreation, and FUN!

And then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and the world changed for our special needs kids. Our school was forced to close, and our students were lost! They lost their routine, their sense of community, and even their playmates and friends. Online learning was NOT designed for special needs kids! They were MORE than anxious to come back to school, back to their routines, their teachers, and their friends.

But they also came back to coronavirus precautions—masks, social distancing, hand washing, sanitizing, teachers switching classrooms NOT kids, lunch in homerooms, and NO new playgrounds because of coronavirus delays and other required safety precautions. These new requirements were not part of our original plans, but they are NOW necessities to keep our children safe and healthy! So, we need YOUR help.

During this Giving Tuesday, please help our special needs kids to play and play safely by giving of yourself and helping us to finish our long-awaited playgrounds. Through your caring and support, we hope to continue to make a difference in the lives of our special needs children and their families. No gift is too small to help inspire change in Northwest Ohio!

For more information on #GivingTuesday419 or to register for the event, log onto Everence.com/GivingTuesday419.

Marathon Classic Volunteers Needed

Marathon Classic Volunteers Needed

Sara’s Garden is proud to announce that we have been selected as a benefiting charity for the 2020 LPGA Marathon Classic to be hosted at Highland Meadows Golf Course, August 3rd-9th.

Sara’s Garden, with the support of the Marathon Classic, hopes to create TWO fully inclusive, multi-sensory play areas in Springfield and Wauseon, which offer youth of all ability levels and their families the opportunity to explore, discover, and play together. They will address the needs of special needs children with neurological, intellectual, and physical disabilities, as well as their typically developing peers and siblings. These fully inclusive, regional playgrounds will have areas and activities rich in sensory experiences, social interactions, and physical challenges. The play areas will naturally expand and enhance both the recreational and therapeutic treatment, offered both during and after school hours for special needs children and their families.

As a benefiting charity, we are providing volunteers to help with set-up and clean-up of the tournament.

  • Ten volunteers are needed for set-up on August 2nd from 2:00 – 6:00 pm.
  • Three volunteers are needed to for clean-up on August 10th at 8:00 am until completion for clean-up (approximately 2 hours).

Volunteers should wear clothes you are comfortable getting dirty or paint on, no jeans allowed. If the volunteer is under 18 years of age, they must have a parent or guardian present.

If interested in volunteering on behalf of Sara’s Garden, please contact Kelly Elton at kellye@sarasgarden.org.

2020 “Drive Fore Hope” Event Postponed

2020 “Drive Fore Hope” Event Postponed

Our 2020 “Drive hope  Hope” Charity Golf Scramble previously scheduled for Friday, May 22 has been postponed indefinitely.

With all the uncertainty surrounding Ohio’s current stay-at-home order we need to postpone this year’s event. Even if we were able to get together by this date we can not, in good conscious, solicit sponsorships right now from local businesses who have been negatively impacted by this time of unrest and shut down.

Thank you so much to the individuals and businesses of Northwest Ohio who have so generously supported us over the years. You have blessed us beyond measure and allowed us to carry out our mission.

We will let you know if we are going to be able to move the 2020 Drive Fore Hope to a later date in the year.
