United Way Warm Coats Warm Hearts Coat Drive at BBC!

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015
Warm Coats Warm Hearts Coat Drive
Keeping kids warm – and in school

Student attendance is crucial for the learning process. When students do not have coats or other winter apparel during the winter months, it may prevent them from attending school. United Way of Greater Cleveland is accepting the challenge by leading a winter coat and apparel drive for CMSD investment schools from November 16th to December 11th.

We need heroes! Your organization can help support this effort by conducting a winter apparel drive.

The goal is to secure new or gently used coats and other winter apparel (gloves, hats, etc.) for our K-8 Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) investment schools scholars.

Get the details and sign up now to start a drive

If your organization cannot conduct a drive you can still support this effort by dropping off a new or gently used coat and other winter apparel at Burten, Bell, Carr Development, Inc or other locations

View drop-off locations

Your support with this effort for our CMSD scholars is greatly appreciated.

Forks Over Knives

This Film is rated PG

Date: Tuesday, July 10th at 6:00pm

Location: New Sardis Primitive Baptist Church (3474 East 147th Street & Kinsman Ave. Cleveland, Ohio 44120)

Community Partner: New Sardis Primitive Baptist Church and Environmental Health Watch

FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal based and processed foods. Despite the most advanced technology in the world, we are sicker than ever. Two out of every three of us is overweight. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer, and stroke are the country’s leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems?

 

After the film we will have discussion and taste samplings of

vegan, vegetarian and raw foods
