Volunteers from the Natural Stone Institute rallied together to build a food pantry at the Neighborhood Alliance Senior Enrichment Services of Oberlin. The volunteer project was a part of this year's annual Week of Caring, where we partner with organizations across Lorain County to match corporate and community volunteers to needed volunteer opportunities. There was a need at the center for a pantry as many seniors who visited the center were having financial struggles and needed food to take home.
Over 200 local families celebrated Halloween in style at the first annual Rising Titans 'Trunk-Or-Treat' event on Saturday, October 27th at El Centro de Servicios Sociales in Lorain. Kids dressed in their holiday best were able to trick-or-treat and collect candy by stopping at automotive stations representing a handful of local organizations, including United Way of Greater Lorian County, Lorain County Public Health and the Lorain Public Library System.
United Way of Greater Lorain County partnered with the Lorain County Educational Service Center and H&R Block for another successful `Fill the Bus' drive. School supply drop off dates & locations were posted throughout the summer and the citizens of Lorain county really came out to help students.
