Coming together as a caring community

Volunteers sort donated pantry items and office supplies.

For a while, we felt like Old Mother Hubbard over here at Village Project. Our kitchen shelves were looking pretty bare. Thank you so much to all of our friends and neighbors who answered our call for help and generously donated much needed pantry items and office supplies.

“I’m so grateful for the compassion and generosity our community continues to show us at Village Project,” said Executive Director Meredith La Vecchia. “These donations help us serve our clients while they’re going through one of the toughest times in their lives. No two cancer journeys are the same and we’re proud to walk with our clients through theirs.”

A huge thank you to SpyGlass Group in Westlake who chose to sponsor Village Project at its holiday party, having all attendees donate five of our wish list items. Students and faculty from both Westerly and Normandy elementary schools in Bay Village had a month-long donation drive. The Daughters of the American Revolution, who so generously donate annually, sent us some much needed items as well.

We also received many donations from the attendees at our Holiday Shoppe event on Dec. 2 as well as from individuals from the communities we serve: Avon, Avon Lake, Bay Village, Rocky River and Westlake. With your help, we’re able to continue to serve our clients and their families healthy, nutritious meals.
