Cleveland 19 came to Avon last week as part of its holiday season ‘Donation Drive.’
Their ‘Share Your Holidays’ event is the single largest donation drive in Northeast Ohio. It features live broadcasts from various Northeast Ohio locations collecting food, coats, toys and other gently used items, on behalf of The Flashes of Hope, The Salvation Army, Volunteers of America, Cleveland Food Bank, Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank and Second Harvest Food Bank.
The Cleveland 19 team came to Avon and the Avon Marc’s store on Monday, Dec., 5 where they were met with an outpouring of community generosity and visits from city and school groups and representatives. Santa also made an appearance and was greeted by Mayor Bryan Jensen, City Council President Craig Witherspoon and members of the Police and Fire Departments. It was a great way to celebrate community generosity, Avon-style!
