Community Partners Give Back And Make An Impact

The meaningful relationships built through Victory Lane are made possible with support from community partners. Dozens of businesses and organizations find that building a partnership with Victory Lane is a meaningful way for them to give back and make an impact. Three of these partners are the Henry County REMC, 321Go Kids, and New Castle Henry County Chamber of Commerce.

Henry County REMC has provided key donations over the past several years. They are a not-for-profit electric cooperative owned by member-consumers in Henry County and parts of Fayette, Rush, Hancock, Delaware, Madison, Randolph and Wayne counties.

REMC equipped Victory Lane with two fully stocked sound systems. These systems make events more engaging and help bring the Victory Lane community together. Recently, REMC donated a foam machine for foam parties, which promise to be a popular addition to several camp activities and events throughout the year.

321 Go Kids is a pediatric outpatient clinic offering physical, occupational and speech therapy to kids birth through 18 years old. 321Go Kids sends therapists from their outpatient clinic to Victory Lane’s summer camp sessions. These therapists help support Partner Families in adapting situations and applying therapeutic solutions to the real-world setting.

“We also connect families that have children with special needs to Victory Lane which allows them to start their journey to becoming a part of the community Victory Lane has built,” shared Dara Upchurch, business manager for 321Go Kids. “I see firsthand the impact that Victory Lane has on families both with and without children with special needs.”

The New Castle Henry County Chamber Commerce works with local government and other organizations to pursue improvements in the overall quality of life for the city, county, and region. The Chamber’s staff, Cindy Brooks and Shonda Kane, provide the community with information about Victory Lane through social media, their email updates, and , talking with other members.

“We feel that what Victory Lane provides is not something that a family can find anywhere,” Cindy noted.

This year, the Chamber gave Victory Lane the opportunity to sell luminaries that will at the annual Christmas Walk. This opportunity will help provide funding for 2023 summer camp sessions. Luminaries are available for purchase by contacting the Victory Lane office at 765-591-4191. If you are part of an organization seeking an opportunity to make an impact, Victory Lane is always looking for ways to connect with companies or non-profit entities.
