Many nonprofits are facing rough recoveries as states begin to open their economies back up. A new Lebanon, Ohio nonprofit, The Magnolia Resource, pushed forward in 2020 finding creative ways to continue supporting the families and youth they serve. Receiving their 501(c)(3) nonprofit status during a state-wide stay-at-home order, The Magnolia Resource buckled down and strategized how they could better serve during uncertain times.
The Magnolia Resource supports those impacted by the foster-care network, kinship care and adoption process through their core services and community outreach. Their goal is help provide joyful, vibrant and successful lives to all. Families can sign up to receive the organization’s signature “BLOOM Box” (see below for details); Digital Resource Network referrals; as well as coaching/outreach events in the near future.
The “BLOOM Box” is a fun twist on a care package. It’s customized for children from infants through nine-years of age and contains new or gently worn clothing, toys, educational items and new hygiene products donated by the community. Packaged in a bright, mid-sized box with a burst of color – this box just makes you smile when you open it! Children can even customize their boxes by coloring the design on them or adding their own unique artwork.
Foster parents, care givers and adoptive parents can register to receive a seasonal “BLOOM Box” or learn more about other resources by going to www.themagnoliaresource.org .
