Blue Ash Philanthropy
Priority Dispatch is collaborating with our new warehouse tenants, Abstract Displays, and “gifting” our warehouse space to serve 500 families for the holiday.
Operation Give Back is a Blue Ash based non-profit organization that tutors, teaches and mentors kids throughout the year. Each December, they open a “Holiday Store” where underserved families can “shop” for their family for a total of $10.00. The event will take here in our warehouse on:
- Friday, December 11th from 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM
- Saturday, December 12th 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
This event is very structured. (The directors are a retired P&G couple) Patrons will come in the side door, enter into the warehouse, shop and exit through the warehouse. Volunteers will be with the shoppers the entire time and assist them loading up their cars. It’s all very simple. FYI: We will make sure that if any visitors are in the building prior to the 11th—they will have proper identification. No one will be utilizing or walking through PDI office space.

Operation Give Back Youth Center
History: Founded by Lee & Wendetta Langston, Operation Give Back inspires and empowers children to improve their lives and communities by creating opportunities for individuals to deposit into others the time, talents, and resources that have been invested in them. We are equipping students with life skills.
Vision : We provide a positive environment and create motivating programs to inspire children to reach their full potential and realize their dreams and aspirations. We foster one community, where volunteers and our participants can learn, grow, and benefit together. We build and entertain invigorating relationships with all children, while inspiring them to foster respect for both themselves and their community by:
- Promoting literacy
- Coordinating community events
- Assisting elders within their communities
- Developing teen summits, programs, etc. to discuss current and relevant issues that they are facing.
