March 2019 Malachi House

Caring Cubs will create spring-themed wreaths for residents of Malachi House to display on their doors.  Malachi House serves people who are terminally ill, without regard to race, gender, religion or national origin and without cost to resident or family.  Malachi House ministers to individuals who need a caregiver at the end of life, who have limited or no financial resources, and are in need of special home care in the final stages of life.  The trained staff and volunteers provide spiritual, emotional and physical support with the assistance of a hospice team.

January 2019 NCJW/BigHearted Blooms

Caring Cubs spent a bright Sunday afternoon learning about upcycling and spreading joy to others. Our cubs joined forces with NCJW and BigHearted Blooms to decorate vases (brought from home) for recipients of repurposed flowers. Families also decorated notes of kindness to send with the flowers and vases. We ended our day by touring the sorting facility that NCJW uses for their thrift store Thriftique. Here our families learned about how our clothes are repurposed after we are finished with them. Thank you to everyone who joined us!!

August 2018 Ben and Jerry’s Fundraiser

Caring Cubs came together to celebrate our 10th anniversary with ice cream and giving back! While celebrating our 10th anniversary, we supported Shoes and Clothes for Kids who are about to celebrate their 50th anniversary! Shoes and Clothes for Kids (SC4K) is the only non-profit organization in Greater Cleveland providing new shoes, school uniforms, clothes and school supplies throughout the year at no charge to thousands of children in need. Our cubs and families decorated 95 thank you cards for teachers. These cards will be placed in the teachers’ bags at checkout by SC4K volunteers. It will be fun for the volunteers and hopefully bring a smile to the teachers as they start a new year. Our cubs and their families generously donated 474 pencils, 183 glue sticks, 50 boxes of crayons, 14 notebooks, 5 bottles of glue, 4 folders, 2 packs of erasers, 1 box of markers, and a pair of scissors. These items will be delivered to the Cleveland Kids in Need Resource Center this week and immediately available for teachers to select for free for their classrooms! Thank you to all the Caring Cubs families who joined us at Ben & Jerry’s!

The Gathering Place will use the gift bags for wigs to those who experience hair loss due to cancer treatment.
