Kenwood Supports Heart Havens

October 31, 2013

Kenwood will be supporting the Heart Havens Home in Ashland in November. The home is located at 320 N. Snead Street in Ashland. During November, we have several opportunities for you to support the residents and staff of the Ashland Heart Havens Home. Here are just a few of the ideas that we have planned:

Freezer Meals: Provide a simple meal that can be frozen and heated up by the home at their leisure. Allergies: tomatoes (all forms) and mushrooms. Casseroles work best and should be provided in a throw-away container. Ideas include meatloaf, fettuccine alfredo, macaroni and cheese, etc.

Minor Home Repairs & Landscaping: A work day is scheduled for November 23 which may include simple landscaping and minor repairs around the home.

Decorating the Home for the Holidays: Join the Higher Ground youth and decorate the outside of the home for the holidays.

Share a Meal with the Staff and Residents: Join us one evening for a dinner with staff and residents. Can’t attend? Don’t worry, there will be many ways to help out with donations.

Leader of a Scouting Organization or Small Group? These are the perfect sized groups to go out to the home for events. Contact Debra Waite and she will get you the necessary contact information for the home so you can arrange an event that best fits your group and the home’s schedule.

Clip Box Tops for Education to Support Elmont School

October 2, 2013

Since 1996, the Box Tops for Education program has helped schools across America earn cash for the things they need.  Each Box Top coupon is worth 10 cents for your school.  In continuing support of our local Elmont Elementary School, Kenwood is collecting the pink coupons that can be found on items such as cereal boxes, snack items, baking products, and much more.  Each school can receive up to $20,000 per school year from clipped Box Tops.  (More information is on the Web at  So, get out your scissors and see what a difference you can make!  Drop your Box Tops in the container on the table in the sanctuary foyer and Debbie Duty will deliver them to Elmont School periodically throughout the year.
