The sun might be shining but the biting cold of a December morning was an excellent reminder that the holiday season is upon us. To celebrate, the OSU Extension, Hamilton County staff took time on Friday to put their own interests aside and volunteer with Valley Interfaith. This annual volunteer project serves as the kick off to their holiday celebrations by giving back to an agency they have partnered with in the past.

At Valley Interfaith, the Hamilton County staff helped turn a warehouse into a waiting room for those who are receiving services. The project capitalized on some of the staff member’s artistic abilities but served an important purpose for Valley Interfaith. As an outreach agency they see thousands of clients every year, there is a large uptick this time of the year. In order to best serve the needs this holiday season an efficient, clean and welcoming environment is necessary to show respect to those who are under served in their community.

To cap off the project the Hamilton County staff met with the Butler County staff to have a holiday luncheon and engage in some cross county fellowship.

A special thanks to Valley Interfaith for welcoming OSU Extension, Hamilton County to their facility with open arms!
