- Annual Dinner
A huge THANK YOU to Mr. David Baker, President of the Pro Football Hall of Fame for speaking words of appreciation over us at our 2014 Annual Dinner! Mr. Baker expressed the value of character in the game of football, but most importantly, in the bigger picture of life and the people we serve daily as we carry out our mission of HOPE to our community. We congratulate and THANK volunteer extraordinaire Joan Tomec who received special recognition for her years of selfless service at the Family Living Center!! Joan digs in the dirt, shovels snow, loves on our residents, and gives of herself in a most amazing way. Thank you, Joan, you have blessed many!

What is Impact 1 Hundred?
Impact1Hundred is a Women’s Giving Circle of Community Services of Stark County Inc. The purpose of the group is to promote philanthropy and engage women in the charitable opportunities of the community. Also, we strive to raise awareness and lead members to become involved with a charity in a more personal way.
The concept of Impact1Hundred is simple. Annual donations of members are combined to award one large grant to fund a program or programs of Community Services. The group is open to all women of the community. The only requirements for membership are to be female and give and/or get $1,000 each year. Every dollar donated by the members is passed along to the selected program.
