Holiday Caring and Sharing 2018

An annual Bay Village tradition to help Bay Village families in need.

There are two ways to help:

Cash Donation for:

  • Emergency funds for residents in financial need. The city will pay up to $250 to a resident in financial crisis for utility bills, rent/mortgage or medical expenses.

Donations to Adopt-a-Classroom:

  • The average teacher in the U.S. spends $500 of his/her own money on school supplies each year, so this year we are adopting the Westerly School in Bay Village, grades 2 and 3.
  • Each classroom will be provided with requested school and project supplies that they would go without if not for donations.
  • Contact Leslie Selig (899-3409) for requested supplies, or a cash donation is always welcome and we do the shopping for you!

Drop off donations by Dec. 12 at the Bay Village Senior Center, 300 Bryson Lane.
