Grants in 2009
2009 – EXTREME MAKEOVER HOME EDITION: The Mark Kreusch Memorial Fund was fortunate enough to participate in the TV show Extreme Makeover Home Edition while they built a house for the Terpenning family in Beavercreek, Ohio. The family includes 4 children, mom, dad and their uncle all under the same roof. The family’s father is a wheelchair Olympian and plays on a wheelchair basketball team. Mark loved sports and the Fund donated a basketball hoop to complete the Terpenning’s backyard playground. Committee members were there to deliver the basketball hoop as well as help unload furniture and accessories for the home. It was a wonderful experience to help this well deserving family!
2009 – OAK TREE CORNER PROJECT: Oak Tree Corner, a grieving center for children, was the recipient of our 2009 grant. The Mark Kreusch Memorial Fund provided a grant of $3200.00 for this room. The room is for the children who attend Oak Tree Corner so they have a safe place to play and hang out. The MAK Arena, named after Mark Andrew Kreusch, was finished in the fall of 2009. It is a large room full of fun for kids of all ages! Special thanks to Cheeky Monkey for painting the mural, CertaPro painters for painting the room, Travis Mouse for helping with the foos ball table and Fender Construction for their donation of supplies and labor to build a closet. The room is loved by all who attend and even has a picture of MARK!
