The donation will go towards helping the organization provide vocational support services to its more than 500 members. Euclid Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail (right) welcomed Amazon to Euclid by helping flip the switch to officially begin the tree lighting ceremony.

Mayor Kirsten Gail opened this year’s Euclid Holiday Celebration at Shore Cultural Center on December 1st with her warmest wishes for a joyous holiday season and the introduction of a few special guests. With a twinkle of festive joy in her eye the Mayor introduced Amanda Lovelace Tobicash from Amazon as well as Doug Knoop with HELP Foundation. Amazon is Euclid’s newest business resident and already a wonderful neighbor, and HELP was honored to have a few residents that they serve in Euclid chosen to light this year’s Christmas tree. Just before the tree was to be lit Amazon made Christmas come early for HELP Foundation as they presented a donation of $10,000 to support HELP’s mission!

“What an honor it’s been to be part of Euclid’s holiday celebration and to have the opportunity to contribute to the service mission of HELP. We’re excited to be bringing 1,000 jobs to Euclid with the building of our new fulfillment center in 2019 and proud to give back to the community that has welcomed us so warmly,” said Lauren Lynch from Amazon. 

Mr. Knoop thanked Amazon “On behalf of HELP Foundation for their generous gift, which will be used to support the people who have developmental disabilities that we are honored to care for!” 

Amazon’s generous gift will be used to support the purchase of a vehicle which is critical to HELP’s ability to serve individuals who have developmental disabilities by assisting them in living and enjoying their lives to the fullest.
