July 2014: Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District and the Greater Cleveland Foodbank

Thank you to the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District for a fun and educational event!  Caring Cubs learned about how we use water every day, the Urban Water Cycle (where does the water come from and where does it go), different types of pollution, and what happens when pollution is on the ground.  The age appropriate presentation included a fun scientific experiment – making SLIME! – that demonstrated the wastewater treatment process.

The mission of the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District is to serve customers by leading effective wastewater and storm water management that protects the health and environment of our region while enhancing quality of life.

To thank the Greater Cleveland Food Bank for hosting our event, Caring Cubs participants donated 40 pounds of food and decorated 50 brown bags which will be used by the Food Bank to distribute healthy lunches to local children!

The Greater Cleveland Food Bank is the largest hunger relief organization in Northeast Ohio having provided nearly 39 million meals in 2013 to hungry people in Cuyahoga, Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, Ashland and Richland counties. Their mission is to ensure that everyone in our communities has the nutritious food they need every day.

Thank you to the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, and our participants for making this another great event!
