This year, we partnered with a number of local community organizations including the Upper Arlington Division of Fire, the Upper Arlington Police Department, and the Upper Arlington Public Library. Through these partnerships, we provided thermal imaging cameras and a portable ultrasound and training to our emergency vehicle making UA Fire the first in the state of Ohio to have this live saving amenity. We hosted over 1,000 people for world-renowned author Amor Towles at the High School for an unforgettably enriching cultural experience. We even identified residents in need through the CARES program to provide emergency grants to help them to get back on their feet again through our Good Neighbor Fund.
Through the Fitzpatrick fund we were able to provide tackling tubes for Upper Arlington Youth Football leagues to help keep children safe while playing football as well as providing scholarships for UA kids to play. We provided beautification for the Arlington Mallway thanks to the Berwanger Fund. We functioned as the fiscal agent and were a major donor for 2018 Centennial celebrations including the Centennial Plaza at Northam Park and we also helped fund Jazz in July to support cultural arts in Upper Arlington. In addition, we have also identified programs that could meet needs in the community in the upcoming months through Upper Arlington churches.
