Coming in first place and winning a total of $3,000 was Life Connection of Ohio, followed by FOCUS in second place winning $1,500, and in third place was Padua Center taking home $500.
Life Connection of Ohio promotes and facilitates organ donation in northwest and west central Ohio.

The good news: One person can save up to eight lives through organ donation and 50 more through tissue donation.
FOCUS, located in Toledo’s Old West End, was founded in the traditions of faith and service. Family Outreach Community United Services (FOCUS) is a community-based agency called to embrace people in need, bring voice to the voiceless, and restore hope and dignity to the forgotten. FOCUS fosters the skills that enable people to gain control of their lives and their futures by providing the necessary steps to emerge from homelessness and poverty, and gain economic and social stability.
The mission of the Padua Center is to be a Christian community-based presence empowering people at all stages of life to achieve their maximum potential through education, counseling, support and community involvement. The Padua Center is located in innercity Toledo.
