City of Westlake collects for hurricane relief

WPD Chief Kevin Bielozer and Rick Grane load donations from the Elks Lodge in Westlake.

The Westlake Police Department, along with the city of Westlake, have set up a donation center to help victims of Hurricane Ida and several tropical storms in the southern states. The police have collected over 1,000 pounds of supplies such as water, food, blankets, toiletries, paper products, charcoal and tents. We are currently working on filling our third semi truck to send down.

The Westlake Police have teamed up with Nehemiah Network, a disaster relief center here in Cleveland. And they transport the supplies down.

You can still donate by dropping off donations at the police station, 27300 Hilliard Blvd, or contact Rick Grane at or 440-829-0974 with any questions.

The police department recently picked up donations from the Lakewood Elks in Westlake. They donated several hundred pounds of water, food and tents to the cause. The police then went to Westlake Elementary School and picked up several boxes of children's books to send down.
