Saturday, November 8, 2014
Holiday Cards for Heroes (American Red Cross) and
Stuffed Animal Collection for the Cuyahoga County Department of Children and Family Services
Hosted by: Cuyahoga Community College
11000 Pleasant Valley Road
Parma, OH 44130

 

Join Caring Cubs on Saturday, November 8 to participate in two of our most popular past volunteer projects!  In addition to supporting two local organizations, Caring Cubs is excited to be partnering again with the Education Department at Cuyahoga Community College. Early Childhood Education majors will be volunteering at the event and working directly with Caring Cubs to complete the projects.
The two service projects at the November event are:
  • In honor of Veterans Day, Caring Cubs will support the American Red Cross of Greater Cleveland and their Holiday Mail for Heroes program.  Caring Cubs will make and decorate holiday cards that will be delivered to veterans, military families and active-duty service members at hospitals and installations around the world.
  • Caring Cubs will also be collecting new and gently used stuffed animals, puzzles, games, and toys to donate to the Cuyahoga County Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS).  After the event, Caring Cubs board members will deliver the donations to DCFS where they will fill the “Treasure Chest.”  Items in the “Treasure Chest” are available at any time for social workers to pick out gifts for the children they are working with.  Children could receive an item for a good report card, during a visitation with their parents, or a day when they could use some cheering up  If your child has a special stuffed friend or toy, he or she will readily understand what an important comfort they can provide for another child. Please make sure gently loved stuffed animals are clean and fresh-looking; an air-dry cycle in the dryer with a fabric softener sheet is advised to fluff them up and remove dust.
Thank you to the Tri-C Early Childhood Education Program for hosting this event for the second year!  We are especially appreciative of the Educators of Today and Tomorrow Club who volunteer at our event.
We hope you and your family can volunteer with Caring Cubs!

 

 

Saturday, December 6, 2014
Providence House
Location TBA

Caring Cubs will be partnering with Young Athletes Cleveland to decorate friendship cards for children at Providence House and make ornaments for their Christmas tree.  In addition to the hands-on service projects, the event will also include a yoga session and basketball activity for the children to engage with one another.

Young Athletes Cleveland is a developmentally appropriate play program targeted towards children with intellectual disabilities ages 2-7 years old. Through Young Athletes, volunteers introduce young children to the world of sport, with the goal of preparing them for Special Olympics sports training and competition when they get older. The program focuses on the basics that are crucial to cognitive development: physical activities that develop motor skills and hand-eye coordination, and the application of these physical skills through sports skills programs.  Youth Athletes currently holds events on the west side of Cleveland and athletes have come from over 26 different cities across the state.

More details will be available this fall.  Registration will open for this event in November.
