Local Shop Helps LOGAN Kids Get to Prom

As seen on WNDU-TV: Local shop helps kids get to prom through raffle. There is nothing cheap about prom. You have to get the dress, the shoes, jewelry, flowers, tickets and more. It is this expense that prevents students from being able to go but one local business is looking to help. Second Hand Rose LLC is holding a raffle to get kids, who may not have the finances, to prom. The idea for this raffle started last year. It was so popular it continued into this year, but a few changes were made. The store owner, Mica Yonker, says she loves giving back to her community and if she could help one student...

Once Upon a Nose…The Nose-On Story

It all began way back in 1988, when LOGAN came up with the unusual idea of selling green noses to raise money and awareness in support of our mission to serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Nobody expected the green nose would become one of our community’s signature traditions! Now, each year, when the calendar turns to March, The Great LOGAN Nose-On officially begins. The selling and wearing of foam green noses during the month of March, especially on St. Patrick’s Day, has become LOGAN’s fundraising—and awareness raising—trademark. In recent years, green dots,...
