Giving and service has been a pillar of Hutton’s success for over a century.
From Levi Hutton’s legacy of generosity that established and endowed a home for generations of children to the generosity of donors during a year where so much has been uncertain, Hutton has been built upon “giving.” In other ways though, it’s giving to others that Hutton residents and alum carry as their coveted memory from their time at Hutton.
During 2020 alone, the residents of Hutton have contributed 510 hours of community service through community organizations like Blessings Under the Bridge, the NAOMI Community, Millwood Impact, Share Far and West Central Abbey’s Dinner Table Program. This has included projects such as a community-wide mug drive and delivery project, preparing and serving weekly meals to those in the West Central Neighborhood and helping to establish several organization’s very own community gardens.
There is no doubt that service to others is invaluable to our society - whether to Hutton or through Hutton. This #GivingTuesday, we are recognizing the impact of said service, especially when your gifts help support our kids’ opportunities to give to others. All gifts given today will be dedicated to these programs that allow our kids an opportunity to give back, creating a sense of empowerment for all involved!
