We gratefully acknowledge each and every one of our donors
Xenia, OH (PRWEB) December 28, 2006
The New Year will be a little brighter for local area at-risk youth as Nationwide Biweekly Administration (NBA) of Xenia held an auction at its annual employee Christmas party to benefit the mentoring program, One-2-One Mentors Ohio. When the bidding was done NBA had raised $1,750 for the worthwhile nonprofit that provides adult mentors to children in single parent families.
"We believe in giving back to the community," said Daniel Lipsky, president of Nationwide Biweekly Administration. "And One-2-One Mentoring Ohio is an organization that positively affects the lives of thousands of people. We're honored to be in a position to help."
Tim Spoleti, One-2-One Mentors Ohio executive director, said, "The most recent financial contribution from Nationwide Biweekly Administration will support three new matches this coming year. Because of this generous donation these children will be able to experience the love, acceptance and encouragement from a caring adult."
Study after study shows that children in single parent families, where the father is absent from the family for one reason or another, experience numerous social problems including:
- 82% of pregnant teenagers come from fatherless homes
- 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes
- 78% of high school dropouts come from fatherless home
- Over 80 % of young men in prison come from fatherless homes
- 75% of all adolescent patients in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes
One-2-One Mentors Ohio seeks to transform the lives of at-risk and hurting youth to break the growing cycle of single parent homes. One-2-One finds adults willing to give freely of their time to act as role models, and partners them with children who can benefit from interacting with a positive adult figure.
Tim Spoleti explains, "After a careful screening process, a background check and comprehensive training, our mentors are assigned a child between the ages of 11 and 18. The bond of friendship means so much to these children. The personal value and social impact are immeasurable. It is very rewarding for the child and the adult."
In addition to the efforts of Nationwide Biweekly Administration, a number of local area companies generously donated products and services to make the event a success:
- The Flower Man donated two dozen roses
- Dayton Marriott donated a one night stay
- Fotini's Hair Design donated a basket of products and gift certificates
- Monarch Limousine donated a two-hour limo ride
- Olive Garden donated a $20 gift certificate
- TGI Fridays donated a $25 gift certificate, plus 2 free appetizers and 2 free desserts
- Mama DiSalvo's donated a bottle of wine
- Your Dream Day donated an amethyst stone
- Homewood Suites donated two suites
- Sue Davey donated a one-hour massage
"We gratefully acknowledge each and every one of our donors," Daniel Lipsky said, "We also want to thank our managers who helped put the auction together, and our employees who bid on the items to make the event a success."
