Bay Community Services' holiday program offers help to those in need

Jim Potter, Bay Village Kiwanis Club community services chairman, presents a $1,000 check to Bay Community Services Director Deborah Bock, kicking off donations for the Holiday Caring and Sharing program.

The Community Services Department has been dedicated to caring for Bay Village’s most vulnerable members for over 26 years. One hundred percent of the funding for the care provided comes from donations from generous individuals, foundations and groups throughout the community. 

Each year food, gifts, cleaning products, paper products and personal hygiene products are provided to residents who are struggling whether to due to illness, loss of income or a variety of other reasons.

This month, Bay Village Kiwanis generously donated $1,000 from their annual Christmas tree sale to the Holiday Caring and Sharing program. Persons wishing to support this program may contribute by making checks payable to the City of Bay Village and mailing or dropping off to the Community Services Department, 300 Bryson Lane, Bay Village, OH 44140. Please include “Holiday Caring and Sharing” in the memo section of your check.

Additionally, donations of non-perishable food, paper products, cleaning products, shampoo, soap, etc. may be dropped off at the Community Services office, located within the Dwyer Memorial Senior Center, until noon on Dec. 17.

The staff at the Community Services Department would like to thank everyone for their generous support of these programs and wishes everyone a very Happy Holiday and Healthy New Year.
