Alex’s Lemonade Stand
Together with Northwestern Mutual, we proudly support Alex’s Lemonade Stand for childhood cancer research. ALS’s mission is to change the lives of children with cancer through funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer. In 2004 when Alex passed away at the age of eight- her stand and inspiration had raised more than $1 million toward finding a cure for the disease that took her life. We hope to honor her memory and legacy by raising funds for this inspirational organization that brings hope to families all over the country.
Children’s Mentoring Connection
The Children’s Mentoring Connection of Hancock County began as a Big Brothers Agency in 1974. The Big Sisters program was added in 1978 and, in May of 2004, the Board of Directors voted to discontinue the affiliation with BBBS of America and officially became a locally independent organization. CMC provides a professionally monitored mentoring program for boys and girls, primarily from single parent families. It is our vision that every qualified child, needing services will be actively engaged in a mentoring relationship designed to enhance their personal growth as competent, caring and confident individuals.
City Mission of Findlay provides emergency help to homeless and hungry people through collaborative efforts to meet physical, spiritual, vocational and mental health needs demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ.

Every man, woman, and family that they serve comes from a different background and has a different challenge and circumstance.
