Outreach & Missions

Community Outreach – Our community partners are very important to us. We are building partnerships with area schools in supporting the students and staff at Hiram Elementary and Hiram High Schools. Activities to date have included Christmas support, appreciation days, staff support, addressing food insecurities, and tutoring/mentoring with students. We recently held an Appreciation Cookout for the City of Hiram staff and officers.
