Together We Care Celebrate the Child logoHARTFORD, Ky. (3/28/2016) — Together We Care’s 23rd Annual Celebrate the Child will held Saturday, April 30, at Ohio County High School.

Activities will begin at 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and this year’s them is “Kids: A Work of Art!” 

Celebrate the Child is Ohio County’s own day to empower young people and inspire adults to nurture youth. Because it’s unique and a lot of fun, over 2,000 people attend annually and over 60 of our area businesses, churches, community groups, and a large group of young volunteers make it happen. 

Celebrate the Child has a special focus on the 40 Developmental Assets that help young people to grow up to be healthy, caring and responsible. The 2016 Theme – KIDS: A WORK of ART! - recognizes the beauty and value of young people as well as their need for creative expression (that’s Developmental Asset #17). 

Celebrate the Child is a project of Ohio County Together We Care, a vital coalition of youth, parents, educators, business people, religious leaders, and others building assets to prevent drug abuse and other problems affecting young people.

From the beginning, this special day has been made possible through the generous sponsorship of Ohio County Schools, Ohio County Hospital, and McDonalds. Now, in our 23rd year, we have gained many other community supporters — we thank all of them for making Celebrate the Child a success.
