Over 100 enthusiastic volunteers joined Caring Cubs at Cuyahoga Community College western campus to volunteer and give back to their community! Our families collected 362 books to donate to the Cuyahoga County Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS). DCFS has a library of books available to anyone who visits their office and the children are encouraged to take home any book they enjoy. Caring Cubs then decorated 210 holiday cards to support the American Red Cross of Greater Cleveland and their Holiday Mail for Heroes program. The cards will be delivered to veterans and military families in our community. Our cubs also made and decorated 154 musical shakers for the Educators of Today and Tomorrow (ETT) to use when they work with inner city children. ETT club members advocate for keeping music in the school curriculum and demonstrate that commitment by teaching appropriate songs, chants, rhythms, and games that the children can actively engage in to enhance their learning. Caring Cubs is so appreciative of our ongoing partnership with the Educators of Today and Tomorrow (ETT) student club at Cuyahoga Community College Western campus. ETT students as well as additional education majors volunteered at the event and worked directly with Caring Cubs to complete the projects. Thank you to the Tri-C Early Childhood Education Program for hosting Caring Cubs for the fifth year! We are so proud of everything that our families accomplished! Hundreds of local children and veterans will benefit from the projects we completed!
