Giving Tree / Ohio Guidestone Update

Thanks to all who have signed up so far to donate a holiday gift to the families served by Ohio Guidestone. They serve 23,000 families annually and 90% are below the poverty line. There are still a few items on their wish list that we need people to donate:

  • Winter jacket: men’s large
  • Winter jacket: men’s extra large (2)
  • Winter jacket: men’s small
  • Winter jacket: boys’ large
  • Cleveland Browns jersey – any size

Please let Jennifer Keirn know if you are willing to donate one of these items: 330-321-6303 or Some instructions for those donating gifts:

  • Beginning with tonight’s troop meeting, there will be a box in the hallway outside Chapman’s gym to gather your donations. 
  • You can bring them to any troop meeting between now and the Dec. 15 troop meeting. 
  • If you cannot bring them to one of these upcoming meetings, please let Jennifer know and we can make arrangements for you to drop off your gift directly at Ohio Guidestone’s donation center. 
  • All gifts must be brand new and in the original packaging or with tags.
  • Do not wrap your gift

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to call or email Jennifer Keirn at 330-321-6303 or If you’d like to learn more about Ohio Guidestone’s mission, visit them online at
