Knickerbocker to host Old Mother Hubbard's Cupboard event
Not every city has two senior centers like Bay Village does. Most know about the Dwyer Center that serves all of Bay Village and surrounding communities with programs and services. However, the Knickerbocker Senior Center exists to serve the residents living in the Knickerbocker Senior Apartments. During the pandemic our center was closed down per the governor's orders. We are yet to open back up but are eagerly awaiting word that it's OK to do so.
Since the Knickerbocker Senior Center is a 501(c)(3) entity, run entirely on donations and volunteers, we are holding our first annual Old Mother Hubbard's Cupboard event. We are in desperate need of replenishing our kitchen supplies. There will be a drive-thru, drop-off event at the Knickerbocker Apartments, 27100 Knickerbocker Road, on Saturday, March 27, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to collect donated kitchen items from the list below. If you are unable to make that time slot, we welcome your donations any time.
Needed items: paper plates (dinner and dessert including miscellaneous leftover holiday items), bowls, cups, coffee stirrers, coffee filters (large for Bunn coffee makers), coffee (regular and decaf), sugar packets (regular and artificial), creamers, tea bags, silverware, napkins, paper towels, paper place mats, tin foil, Ziploc bags of all sizes, salt and pepper packets, straws, plastic glasses for iced tea, etc.
If a check is more your style, you may send it to the Knickerbocker Senior Center, 27100 Knickerbocker Road, Bay Village, OH 44140. We hope the community will rally around us and help keep the Knickerbocker Senior Center going. If you have any questions, please call 440-835-1111.
I am the activities director for the Knickerbocker Senior Center and wish to submit articles on our behalf.
