A little about LEAPIN OUTREACH CENTER:
The word “Leapin” is an acronym:
L - Loving
E - Each
A - And
P - Person
I - In
N - Need
Leapin’ Outreach Center is a non-profit outreach program organized to help people in need. They currently help in the areas of clothing, personal needs, household items and sometimes with food emergencies.
While trying to fulfill material needs, they are also there to help with emotional and spiritual needs as well. They take referrals from agencies but also accept walk-ins.
They are open:
Tuesday 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Thursday 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Leapin’ Outreach is always in need of donations of good, clean clothing, personal need items such as soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, household items, sheets, blankets and towels. They can always use monetary donations. The Center also needs volunteers to help serve the Marion area residents.

Cupcake Wars 2018
Wow…The support for this year’s Cupcake Wars was outstanding. Bakers (35) and Sponsors (30) flooded into the Barn at All Occasions, for our 5th year of presenting the event, where the traditional balloons were flying and the smell of frosting was in the air. By Feb. 1st the Twig IV event was sold out and the bakers’ spots were all reserved. The creativity of the bakers was over the top with Pirate ships, fairies, buckeye trees, Olympic games, holidays, even an Eiffel Tower, and much more. There were also cupcakes looking like Ice Cream Sundays and Starbucks drinks, jewelry, healthy ideas, Lorax and memorials. The sale of cupcake boxes was great and guests filled their boxes with delicious treats.
The winner this year was a wonderful pirate display created by Keith and Connie Adams.
We thank everyone for their support and participation. Of course, the big winner is OhioHealth’s Hospice and Palliative Care programs.
A final tally of the proceeds will be posted after our next Twig IV meeting.
Thank you to our incredible committee. They are dedicated and the hardest working volunteers I have had the pleasure of working with.
