HANNAH’S TREASURE CHEST a respected children’s charity in Centerville, OH, enriches the lives of children in need by providing clothing, books, toys, and other essential items through a network of partner agencies in four counties. Additional programs include Brighter Smiles dental kits, Beds for Babies, Backpack Bonanza, and Giving Angels. Since 2001, Hannah’s Treasure Chest has maintained a warehouse of donated clothing, infant/toddler, equipment and other items to respond quickly to client requests. When a partner agency, like Peace, identifies a child in need, Hannah’s provides essential items to the agency, which in turn delivers them to the child. Each year Hannah's Treasure Chest enriches the lives of over 7,000 local children in need through all programs and services. Peace has been blessed to be a partner with this organization. We have a collection bin outside the Fellowship Hall for children’s clothing, coats, and boots. We have been able to help many families in our community through this program. http://www.hannahstreasure.org/
