Sonja's Loving Heart Foundation

In 2005, Sonja and Rob Kozuch co-founded Bear Mountain Custom Painting, where Sonja was officially President and unofficially a "ray of sunshine" to everyone she worked with and met. Sonja had a big heart and loved making personal occasions and holidays’ special for everyone. She also loved giving back throughout her life, actively participating in community food pantries and soup kitchens, tutoring of illiterate adults, mentoring of disadvantaged youth, being a Big Sister, a foster parent, a Girl Scout leader, a softball coach, and a church organist. In 1988, she was the founding Executive Director of the Big Brothers / Big Sisters chapter in Guernsey County, OH. She has also spearheaded the community and charitable projects of Bear Mountain Custom Painting.

Sonja Kozuch, our late founder, left behind a great legacy of caring for others. To honor the memory of Sonja and her loving, giving spirit, we are actively forming a charitable foundation - "Sonja's Loving Heart Foundation".
