Community Involvement

At 212 Media Studios, we’re honored to share our community with organizations that are changing lives for people in need. We know these non-profits are the lifeblood of Kosciusko County, and we make it our mission to partner with them through events, sponsorships, and volunteer opportunities. Check out all our local involvement initiatives below.

2/12 Day: Celebrating Area Non-Profits

Every year on February 12, we host an appreciation luncheon for all the non-profit organizations in Kosciusko County. We believe our non-profits are the lifeblood of our community, so we use 2/12 Day as an opportunity to thank them for making this area such a great place to live, work, and play.

On 2/12 Day, non-profit representatives get treated to a special luncheon while we celebrate everything they do—complete with food, entertainment, and even gifts! We bring in inspiring guest speakers and provide resources to help our local organizations continue to confidently serve our community.

Rather than host our annual luncheon amid COVID-19 restrictions in 2021, we decided to celebrate Kosciusko County organizations virtually this year. We were thrilled to provide local non-profit leaders with a series of video sessions to help them improve their productivity in both work and life.

The event culminated with the announcement of Ends of the Earth Outreach as the winner of our 2021 Non-Profit Community Impact Award. Because of their creativity and leadership in building connections in our community, Ends of the Earth will receive a year of free marketing services to raise awareness, improve donor engagement, and drive their fundraising initiatives.

Coast-to-Coast for Hand-in-Hand Orphan Schools

We are honored to spotlight Encompass World Partners’ Hand-in-Hand Orphan Schools as their director raises awareness for the initiatives in the Central African Republic. Barb Wooler and her friend, Judi Orme, completed a 40-day, cross-country bicycle trip in honor of the 40 schools that Hand-in-Hand supports.

Revisit Barb & Judi’s journey here. You can also give in honor of their coast-to-coast adventure—all proceeds raised from the ride went directly to the orphan schools.
