From the other agencies who participate to the hundreds of Greene County families that turn out each year, the response is really heartwarming and says a lot about our community.”

Other organizations participating in this year’s Children Services’ Trunk or Treat event include CareSource, Kids Learning Place/Head Start, Greene County Library, The Hope Spot, TCN Behavioral Health, Parks and Trails, Greene CATS, Xenia Police Department’s DARE Program, Family and Children First, Greene County CASA, Community Action Partnership, Greene Memorial Hospital/Soin Medical Center, Greene Metropolitan Housing Authority, Greene County Clerk of Courts and Title Division, Xenia FISH Food Pantry, Domestic Relations Court, and FRABAAA (First Responders & Bikers Advocating Against Abuse), among others.
