Community Helps Clean Case Elementary

Our Federation family had a great day of giving back during our annual “Day of Caring.” Volunteers were all around Cleveland, doing their part for local foodbanks, nursing homes, and schools. A handful of volunteers chose to venture out to Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s (CMSD) Case Elementary, a Wraparound Services Initiative school, where many students struggle to succeed academically. Students at these schools also might not have enough to eat or a safe place to call home.

Believe-land?

In 2004, I moved to Cleveland, clad with a winter coat that more resembled a sleeping bag than any sort of shapely outerwear, nostalgic memories of a sun tan, and the phone number of some distant relatives. I knew no one else.

There is no greater mitzvah (good deed) than honoring those who came before us! Thank you to the many volunteers who joined together for our Jewish Volunteer Network (JVN) and Commission on Cemetery Preservation (COCP) annual Spring Cemetery Cleanup. From across the community, came young and old alike, spending their Sunday raking, pruning, and beautifying the 124 year-old Lansing Cemetery.
