End of the Year Greater Euclid Kiwanis Events Benefit the Euclid Community

The Greater Euclid Kiwanis ended 2019 on a high note with events and activities which benefited the Euclid community. 

In November the club hosted its first Empty Soup Bowl Project. This event was a huge success with volunteers from the Greater Euclid Kiwanis showing up in numbers. Euclid High School students and Cleveland school students donated beautiful bowls for the project along with other bowls collected by the Greater Euclid Kiwanis.

Chef Tasso Corfis from Beal's Pickles & Pints, along with son Alex and fellow Kiwanian Nick McGill, manned the kitchen creating wonderful soups. Soups were also donated by other Kiwanians, and Dave's Grocery Store donated bread and ingredients for all the salads, which helped to make this event a great success. In the end, the Greater Euclid Kiwanis and the wonderful members of our community who attended raised over $1300 which was presented to Kay O'Donnell of the Euclid Hunger Center on December 10th.

During December, the Greater Euclid Kiwanis collected over 145 items for their Hat and Mitten drive. Those items were taken to the Euclid Police Department where Euclid officers will give to those youth in need during the winter months.
