Helping Local Organizations Prosper

Giving back to the community has always been a priority of Yazoo Mills’ for decades, with numerous organizations receiving donations from the company.  In October 2013, Yazoo Mills presented Olivia’s House with a $5,000.00 check to help bring their new grief center to Hanover, PA.  The money was also used to sponsor the Elementary Play Area at the new Hanover facility.

“Equipped with grief-related toys and games, the play room serves our youngest grievers, whether they are preschool or elementary school age, and facilitates grief-work through play.  Whether they are enjoying the doll house or the fire house, all of the children are able to share their grief stories with our staff.  The mural in the Elementary Play Area, painted by Dirk Shearer, is a favorite with all of the children,” says Jim Poster, Development Director at Olivia’s House.
