Home Savings Donates $5K to Lakeview Schools

CORTLAND, Ohio – Home Savings presented a check for $5,000 to Lakeview Local Schools Wednesday to refurbish the tennis courts its students use at Willow Park.

“We use the tennis courts at Willow Park for our high school matches in the fall and spring. In addition, the courts are used for summer camps for our students,” said Sean Miller, treasurer of Lakeview Local Schools. “We are hopeful that this project will be completed before the fall season.”

Lakeview Local Schools is partnering with the city of Cortland to fix the tennis courts.

“The overall project cost will be approximately $65,000 and this donation will be a great start to our community fundraising. We are hoping to raise at least half the money through donations with the city providing the balance of the funds needed to complete the project,“ said Cortland Mayor Jim Woofter.

Since 1998, the Home Savings Charitable Foundation has provided nearly $16 million in support to nonprofit organizations in the community, with its focus being primarily directed toward community support and economic development as well as educational programs.
