KLICWOW, RHB Partner for House of Peace

Child safety and success is a mission RiverHills Bank holds very near and dear to our hearts. This is why we have recently partnered with the Clermont County Chamber of Commerce Foundation and YWCA Greater Cincinnati. The Clermont Chamber of Commerce, as part of their “Agenda for the Future” initiative, fostered a Foundation project known as KLICWOW, or Kids Learn Early in Clermont - Wow. For the last two years, KLICWOW has provided completely free Amazon tablets and WOW Pouches to over 500 vulnerable children in Clermont County. The tablets provide access to recommended early learning applications, helping 3-4 year olds become better prepared for kindergarten success. By providing these resources, KLICWOW is facilitating equitable access to early learning for low income children– an opportunity their families would otherwise not be able to afford.
