DMD Gives Back to Home of the Innocents to help support 12,000 kids and families – Episode 10
Each year, the DMD dads support a cause that we all hold dear to our hearts. This year DMD Gives Back to Home of the Innocents (the Home), which is where Louisville’s vulnerable children and youth have found emotional, physical, and intellectual support that can transform their lives since 1880.
This interview is with Meredith Pack, HOTI Communications Director, and Mike LaCharite, event planner with Top Mark Events. We discuss the 4 major service areas of the Home, their amazing programs, 2 success stories and their growth plans. We look at how Social Media has changed how the community learns about the needs of the Home and how they can be directly involved both locally and from afar.
