The holiday season brings happiness and cheer, but also brings financial stress to many families in our community. The Holiday Caring & Sharing Program is an annual Bay Village tradition to help families in need by providing gift cards or financial assistance.
How YOU can help: By December 16th, donate cash or check to the Emergency Fund, which provides limited assistance for Bay residents experiencing an emergency (critical need for medical care, food, shelter, protection, special counseling, and under some circumstances, assistance with utilities. Or, donate gift cards for a family in need (Heinen's, Giant Eagle, Walmart, Target and Amazon are recommended) that will help them purchase holiday gifts for children in their household under age 18. Donations can be mailed in or dropped off to the Bay Village Senior Center at 300 Bryson Lane.
