Backpacks and Hearts Full

The incredible Jimmy Gallagher of The Flying Monkey Pub volunteered to do a fundraiser to help us purchase school supplies for kids in need in our community, raising over $800! And then there were the financial donations from A&B Plumbing LLC, Lakewood United Methodist Church members and Onix Outreach, materials from Franklin Circle Christian Church, and more!
 
The supplies (in new backpacks) were shared at Lakeview Terrace on Pizza Day and at the Zelma George Family Shelter.
 
Also, Julie Limpach, who helps with our PR, also helps with North Eaton Christian Church. NECC works with Midview Elementary in Grafton, and Julie took 2 trips to deliver backpacks and supplies to the school.
 
For our history, we started to help Midview Elementary many years ago due to so much food insecurity there. They may not be around the corner from Cleveland, but we are all one family.
 

Thank You to everyone for making this project so successful.
