Please meet Vickie Mertz , who helps people raise out of poverty with employment through +Cincinnati Works. Quietly, without any need or want of recognition, Vickie has been buying ingredients for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with pretzels or chips, and distributing them to people on the streets. Tucked into each bag is a little note from Vickie that reads, “God loves you and so do I. Sign my name.” John 316 In the cold months of January and February, she also collects winter outerwear.
She says she does it because it is something her heart tells her to do. She is definitely a CINspirational person. Please read her story here: http://goo.gl/UnXCrp ‪#‎GoodThingsCincy‬ +Cincinnati, Ohio #randomactofkindness #Cincinnati

Calista Stone, our vice-president of programs, is the latest board member at Design Impact! She was invited to join after she worked with Design Impact in Studio C 2015 to revamp the Cincinnati Works Advancement Program.

"Calista was definitely one of the bright spots in Studio C 2015--bringing lots of positive energy, a commitment to social justice, organization and direction for her team, and particularly took to a lot of the concepts around empathy-building and creative process. She has a long history of working in a variety of levels within non-profits, and we look forward to adding her perspective to our leadership team." –Kate Hanisian, Design Impact
