People Working Cooperatively is hosting an event at Newport Aquarium on Tuesday, Sept. 27 to honor individuals in the community that have made an impact on its mission to save homes and restore pride.
PWC provides home repair, weatherization, and accessibility modification services for low-income homeowners throughout Greater Cincinnati.
Many of PWC’s clients are the elderly, veterans, single parents, or grandparents raising children, and those with disabilities who are living on a fixed income. With the need for services outweighing resources, PWC President Jock Pitts said the organization relies on the support of its dedicated corps of volunteers, in addition to its staff of licensed and trained employees, to help these local residents continue living independently.
“The work we do each and every day allows our neighbors to stay healthy and safe in their own homes,” Pitts said. “This event is about honoring those in the community that gives of their time and skills to help us to achieve and further our mission — including our staff, volunteers, local businesses, and like-minded organizations. We are truly thankful for their dedication and support.”
Doors open at 11:30 a.m., and the program begins at noon. Individual reservations are $45, and a table sponsorship is $500. Tickets are available for purchase here through Sept. 19.
