christmasHYPEHYPE (Helping Young Professionals Emerge) would like to thank everyone in Miami County who supported our HYPE Holiday Gift Drive and who donated gifts at any of our many drop locations in Troy, Piqua, Tipp City, and Covington.

HYPE would like to specifically thank each of those city Chambers of Commerce, the Unity Banks, and Miami County Auditor Matthew Gearhardt and the Miami County Commissioners who also offered additional drop sites and support that helped us surpass our goals and expectations!  In total, we collected over 250 gifts!

HYPE is committed to community service as part of our mission, and we are excited to be a part of the many organizations and citizens that make Miami County a better place.  On behalf of the many children receiving presents from Santa Claus at Family Connections through this gift drive, thank you!
