  • Volunteers Needed for Hospice of the Western Reserve

    Touch a life...Become a Hospice Volunteer.

    Hospice is a philosophy of care, not a place. We care for our patients wherever they call home. As a vital part of our team volunteers come from all walks of life, and have a variety of skills, talents and abilities.

    Opportunities to serve are diverse: visit patients and families to provide companionship, socialization, and comfort help with legacy work, transportation, light housework, meal preparation, run errands, make phone calls, help with clerical work, attend health fairs, make a presentation. Volunteers with specialized professional qualifications and training are also needed: attorneys, licensed hair dressers, massotherapists, pet therapy dogs and their handlers.

  • International Student Outreach Opportunity

    Parkside families are invited to minister to international students from Case and CSU as they arrive for the fall semester. There are several opportunities available through a partner campus ministry including: providing temporary housing, picking up students for the airport, donating furniture and other household items, and assisting in set-up and delivery.

    For more information, contact Dan Southam at dsoutham@parksidechurch.com

  • Solon Home Days "Thank You"

    A special “thank you” to the 36 people who served at the Solon Home Days festival booth last weekend.

    Community festivals give us the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with many people who wouldn’t normally attend church. We pray that God will use some of the invitations and literature given away to bring people to Christ.

    Thank you for taking the time to be a part of this outreach.

  • Alternaterm "Everyday Heroes" Walk/Run Update

    THANK YOU!

    We are so happy to let you know that our 2016 Everyday Hero Fun Walk/Run was quite successful. Despite the chilly, wet day we had a great turn-out of heroes who raised just over $19,000 dollars. This is a great beginning for what is sure to become the largest life walk event here in Northeast Ohio. Heroes are already talking about next year. Please plan to join them!!

    YOU CAN STILL BE A HERO!

    As you can see we did not meet our goal of raising $30,000. We have a generous donor who has agreed to encourage giving toward that goal by providing a match of funds raised between now and June 19th.
