Cincinnati Habitat for Humanity aims to eliminate substandard housing by building, renovating, and repairing homes in partnership with low-income families. As part of the process of receiving a Habitat home, these partner families commit to 500 hours of sweat equity, helping to build the homes and then making zero-interest monthly mortgage payments. Cincinnati Habitat volunteer crews build about 20 homes a year in the Cincinnati area.
PPG Porter Paints' team has dedicated 90 years to sprucing up homes with its revered brand of vivid, low-odor paints, stains, and primers. Multiple lines and sheens of interior paint offer to protect walls from presidential portraits painted in mustard ($25.79+/gal.).

Effective on most surfaces, Porter's acrylic, synthetic, and alkyd Seal Grip primers also help house-wide paint jobs to stay put ($40+/gal.). Amicable staff members roam each locale's voluminous aisles and are eager to provide product recommendations for any home, office, or abandoned grain silo.
As the owners of Love Letters, sisters Molly, Abbey, Carlie, Jessica, and their mom Gayle combine colorful, monogrammed gifts and accessories with a touch of southern style. Nifty needlework is included in each price, dancing across fetching baskets and blankets to add a personal touch and an easy way to identify humor.

Food-fight instigators confidently clutch Scout bags and bins ($28–$32), whose recycled materials wipe clean with ease. Quilted Stephen Joseph backpacks ($28–$35), carefully crafted for young scholars and toy-toters, safely support kid-sized copies of War and Peace. An array of fort-building fodder is also available, such as Aden + Anais blankets ($18–$50), whose organic muslin base keeps tots warm while monograms help parents remember which fruit they chose to name their children after. Grown-ups delight in the Occasionally Made portable bar ($38–$40), adding a touch of charm to mall parking-lot tailgates.
Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.

At Water Works Car Wash, there's a car wash even before the car wash. To wit: before cars are trundle through the main wash, technicians prep them with a power wash and a soft brush scrub in the back of the vehicle. This removes the surface level of dirt so that the actual wash can take on more stubborn forms of grime and poltergeists. This is just one example of the lengths they go in order to get cars sparkling clean. The actual wash features Samurai Shield total body protectant, tire shines, as well as interior vacuuming and mat cleaning. There are a number of wash packages here as well as more advanced detail services, all designed to get cars looking as clean as they did when they first memorized their garage door code.
