Euclid Hospital Holds Cereal Drive for EHC
Euclid Hospital is taking a stand against hunger by hosting a cereal drive and donating all of the proceeds to the Euclid Hunger Center. The Cereal Drive will run until June 6th.
In 2012, Cleveland Clinic Enterprise came in 4th in all the hospitals systems throughout the country that participated, collecting 71,908 servings. Euclid Hospital came in first with 22,000 servings, Main Campus was second with 20,000 servings and Hillcrest Hospital was third with 7,600 servings.
The Euclid Hunger Center serves 530 Euclid households per month. Thanks to donations and drives like the one occurring at Euclid Hospital, local children who do not have someone at home to provide them with breakfast or lunch are supplied with nourishment. Euclid City Schools serve approximately 1,300 breakfasts to students each day at no cost to the students and also offer a Summer program for students.
To join the cause, donate online at www.euclidhungercenter.org or mail checks made payable to Euclid Hunger Center to:P.O. Box 23446,Euclid,OH44123. The following non-perishable items are most needed by the Center and are deeply appreciated: canned fruit, canned vegetables, cereal, fruit juice, macaroni & cheese, peanut butter & jelly, rice, soup, spaghetti & sauce, tuna fish, toilet paper, shampoo and other toiletries. Drop off your food donations at these locations around the city: Curves, The Euclid Public Library, Eaton Family Credit Union or Euclid Lakefront.
