Giving Tree 2020 – There is still time to make a difference!

2020 has brought many surprising challenges to each of us this year. In addition, many of the organizations that support families and children in need are experiencing those challenges as well. This year we are looking at two organizations that you may have the option to give towards their worthy cause. If you feel the heart of giving this holiday season to one or both organizations, that is wonderful news.

The first organization is Pathway Caring for Children, founded in 1973, which is hosting a toy drive for children in foster care this holiday season. They have put together an Amazon toy registry, and the items will ship directly to their Brookpark office for children that live in or closer to Cuyahoga County. Case Managers will wrap the gifts and share them with the foster families for the little ones to open on Christmas morning. The link to purchase items is:

The second organization is the Key Club that started the Christmas Crusade 34 years ago in Brunswick OH, Medina County. The club is run by high school students that assist 80-100 less fortunate families within the community. They are collecting non-perishable foods, new and gently used coats, hats, gloves, boots and shoes. They are also collecting NEW UNWRAPPED TOYS, as well as gently used toys, for donations.

Items for the Key Club will be collected by Jodi Sepesy (Caleb’s mom) at her home before December 13th, from 5-8 PM. Jodi will then meet with the Club Advisor for delivery. Please contact her with any questions.

Thank you for helping the many families in need within our communities to make a happy holiday season for them.
