"Service Above Self" Volunteer opportunities
Our Community Service Committee is doing a fabulous job providing volunteer opportunities for both those that are comfortable to go out and for those that want to volunteer right from their home. If you are doing something to help the community please send a picture and a description, we want to recognize you!!  
The Greater Cleveland Food Bank has an upcoming volunteer day, December 8th from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. They are seeking 10+ volunteers.  If interested please click the following link to register: 
Participate in a diaper and dye free laundry detergent drive for the Achievement Centers for Children. For 80 years they have been "empowering children and adults with disabilities and their families to achieve their greatest potential." This is a perfect volunteer opportunity to do right from your home.
American Red Cross Blood Donor Day, December 3, 2020.  For every 1 donation, 3 lives can be saved!  Need we say more?  This is a great opportunity for the entire family, a friend, or colleague to join you and make a difference! Due to natural disasters and Covid - 19 the need has never been greater! If donating blood isn't possible, there are plenty of other volunteer opportunities available. 
Thank you to Jessica Hanes and anyone else able to "give the gift of life" this week!!
