  • Diaper Donations Needed!

    Looking for caring individuals to help support the Portage-Summit diaper bank!

    Why diapers? Diapers are a basic need for infants and children and federal programs such as SNAP and WIC do not cover diapers. An inadequate supply of diapers has severe repercussions for the health and emotional well-being of the child and parent. Unfortunately, UnitedHealthcare declined to continue their sponsorship this year, leaving the organization in a very serious financial bind and unable to purchase diapers to make up for any donation shortfall.

  • Hospice of the Western Reserve- Furniture Donations Needed!

    Consider donating your gently used furniture/household items to Hospice of the Western Reserve Warehouse Sales. What better way to repurpose gently used furniture and housewares than to donate to a beneficial cause?

    Sales are held several times throughout the year at Hospice of the Western Reserve Headquarters, 17876 St. Clair Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44110. The next Warehouse Sale is Friday, May 12th, 8 am-4 pm and Saturday, May 13th, 9 am-3 pm.
