Join Caring Cubs for this favorite service project! We will be making and distributing Halloween crafts, doing puzzles, and visiting with the residents of Arden Courts.

Our cubs will create fun ghosts and decorate pumpkins side-by-side with the residents. Once complete, we will take a walk around the facility and distribute our spooky creations to residents who were unable to join us in the activity room.

Arden Courts  provides specialized memory care in a safe and nurturing environment. They recognize an individual’s physical, mental and social needs and provide a secure environment that fosters independence for as long as possible.

We will be at two locations – please choose the location that is most convenient for your family.

National Council of Jewish Women/Cleveland

Warrensville Heights, OH 44128
 

Operation Warm-Up is a winter clothing collection that is distributed at Cleveland’s Homeless Stand Down, a long-standing collaboration of hospitality and care that serves between 500 and 1800 people each January —in the heart of Cleveland’s winter —when donations dwindle after the year-end holidays.

Caring Cubs families are invited to participate in the clothing drive by bringing NEW packages of underwear & socks to add to the collection. We will talk about how much we all appreciate our own clothes, thinking about what it means to donate to others. In addition, we will make fleece scarves which will also be distributed at the Stand Down. Each scarf will receive a hand-made gift tag, which our Cubs will decorate during the project.

Families in attendance can expect to talk about what it means to donate something that is gently used, being mindful of the feelings of the recipients of such donations. We will also talk about how good it feels to keep cozy and warm —and how special it feels to receive a gift that is adorned with a message of friendship.

Our host for this project is the National Council of Jewish Women/Cleveland, a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. NCJW strives for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, and families —and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms. NCJW/Cleveland volunteers assist women, inspire children, and engage with at-risk youth. A leader in the volunteer service sector, NCJW/Cleveland has also established social service agencies and philanthropic projects throughout northeast Ohio since 1893.

Registration for this service project is now full.
 
Save the date – Saturday, November 4th for our annual Holiday Cards for Heros project at Tri-C! More information to come!
 

Join Caring Cubs for one of our largest projectsof the year! In addition to supporting two local organizations, Caring Cubs is excited to be partnering again with the Educators of Today and Tomorrow (ETT) student club at Cuyahoga Community CollegeWestern campus. ETT students as well as additional education majors will be volunteering atthe event and working directly with Caring Cubs to complete the projects.

Families will be able to participate in three service projects at our November program. The service projects 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 and military families in our community. The Red Cross of Cleveland will have a representative on hand to speak to the families and answer questions.
  • Caring Cubs will also be collecting new and gently loved books to donate to the Cuyahoga County Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS). Books for babies through teenagers are needed. DCFS has a library of books available to anyone who visits their office and the children are encouraged to take home any book they enjoy. (Please note that we are only collecting books in 2017).
  • Our cubs will also complete a project for the Educators of Today and Tomorrow (ETT) to use when they work with inner city children. ETT club members advocate for keeping music in the school curriculum and demonstrate that commitment by teaching appropriate songs, chants, rhythms, and games that the children can actively engage into enhance their learning. Caring Cubs will be helping ETT to create the shakers that will be used by the children. The ETT club will provide the materials and work with ourcubs on this fun and meaningful project.

Thank you to the Tri-C Early Childhood Education Program for hosting Caring Cubs for the fifth year! We are especially appreciative of the Educators of Today and Tomorrow Club who volunteer at our service project. This will be a busy and hands-on service project! We hope that you and your family can join usand make a profound impact on our community
