Brightside Academy Ohio decided to share a little holiday cheer by hosting a Turkey Giveaway at the St. Clair location on Thursday, December 20th.
Brightside Academy Ohio in conjunction with the Cleveland Food Bank and the City of Cleveland distributed over 100 frozen turkeys and other holiday food staples to all Brightside Academy Ohio – St. Clair families, who signed up to receive. Brightside Academy Ohio’s goal was to bring their families together and give beyond the child care and educational services that their children receive daily.
Courtney Harris, Brightside Academy Ohio Marketing Director shares, “To us, the holiday time is really important because it brings families together,” she added. “This time of year, my family gathers together at our grandmother’s house, and we always have turkey and a house filled with laughter and joy. We decided we need people to get back to family, where they’re coming together and sharing a meal and creating lasting memories.”
A great number of families attended to enjoy music, community resources and time together. Brightside Academy Ohio and other volunteers, including the City of Cleveland Police was glad to see so many Brightside Academy Ohio families in attendance. They hope the families benefited from coming.
Ezra Beren, President of Brightside Academy Ohio shares, “It was our pleasure this holiday season to extend our warmest greetings and best wishes for a New Year by giving back to our families.”
Brightside Academy Ohio was glad to provide giveaway turkeys so that our families can have a little joy this holiday season.
