Since its start, PromoSpark has made it a priority to give back to the community, both locally and globally. Discover how we’re making a difference! I want to plump this up a bit.
For more information on the companies and events discussed here, check out our articles!
Free Throws For Kids
Mission: To show hope and God’s love to kids and families at Cincinnati & Dayton Children’s Hospital in a very practical way.
How PromoSpark Helps: Free Throws for Kids was started by Mark and Sarah Johnston, owners of PromoSpark. They produce the team T-shirts free of charge, donate the bags and the goodies that go into them for each family, and give back with their time volunteering throughout the year and at the event.

Reach Out Lakota

Butler County Board of Developmental Disabilities
Mission: To support individuals with developmental disabilities and their families to successfully live, work and learn in the community.
How PromoSpark Helps: The PromoSpark staff volunteers at sporting events throughout the year. They provide Christmas gifts to a family in need through Butler DD’s Adopt A Family program, as well as hosts fast breaks for individuals in the community.

Ronald McDonald House of Cincinnati
Mission: To provide a ‘home away from home’ for families with critically ill children while receiving treatment at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. They surround families with hope and support and bring joy and a sense of normalcy to children as they heal.
How PromoSpark Helps: PromoSpark volunteered to prepare a meal for every family staying at the Ronald McDonald House, which was about 78 guests. The RMH has since hired a full time chef to prepare healthy meals for the families. Free Throws For Kids was able to provide a salad bar and keep it stocked for the first year due to the amazing fundraising efforts of their 2016 event.

Bike for Tikes
