    Start Time: Thu 26, July 2018, 6:30 p.m.

    On July 26, stop by Mitchell's Homemade Ice Cream in Solon between 6:30-8:00pm and donate a NEW children's book and receive a free scoop of ice cream. This special event, "Bringing Hope by the Scoop," helps support Building Hope in the City, a faith-based organization in Cleveland that partners with local congregations, people, and communities to see the city restored to God.

    The books are used in two ways: 1) They are given to children in tutoring programs at the beginning of the school year to take home and keep; and, 2) BHITC offers "Little Free Library Carts" at our tutoring locations where students can borrow books to read during tutoring and also to take home and return.

  • 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.

The two performances will be Sundays, March 18th and March 25th at 3 pm at Notre Dame Chapel, 13000 Auburn Road in Munson.
