We have supported a lot of local sports teams in the area including softball,, baseball,, basketball, football, hockey,, lacrosse, volleyball and even little league teams. We also give to local charity golf outings, The Springboro Community Assistance Center, Food Pantries, Local Troops and just about any charity that walks through our door we always donate a gift card. We have also taken part in charity auctions for Springboro families in need, raised money for nurses traveling to help children in need for facial deformities, Therapeutic Riding Institute, our local Springboro Chamber of Commerve, Bridigs Path just to name a few.. One of my favorite things to do is make gift baskets for local charities and fundraisers. We have had two big fundraising events since we've opened that were very successful.
