More than 380 people from the community gathered to celebrate this year’s 14th annual Making the Difference Banquet including former offenders, judges, court officials, members of law enforcement, court officials, ministry leaders, nonprofit organizations, social enterprises, business owners, and members of the recovery community in Stark County.
Together we raised more than $50,000 to support ongoing BCM initiatives including Lydia’s Home, and saved thousands more through the in-kind donations of goods and services by many individuals and businesses.
The evening included a 90-minute program with a focus on the opioid epidemic in Northeast Ohio. A spotlight on personal stories of transformation as well as ongoing support from partners including WOW Ministry provided the stunning backdrop for our unique story and the success of our mission.
Thank you to our sponsor partners and all those who have given so generously of time, talent and treasure to support our vital work and those that we serve!
Together, we are helping to change lives and making our community a happier, healthier, safer place to call home! To learn more, volunteer or give to our Wish List, visit Take Action!
