Stephen J. Ross Volunteer Hub Officially Dedicated & "Re-Opened"

On Dec.14, the Stephen J. Ross Volunteer Hub was officially dedicated and “re-opened” with new flooring donated by Ross Builders. This open door event included volunteering projects and a ribbon cutting ceremony.

31 volunteers quality checked & sorted 730 books, over 1,200 school supply items, over 400 pieces of clothing, and crafted items to be included in preschool literacy kits. All items will be made available to collaborative partners throughout Greater Lorain County to distribute to families in need.

Grandsons of Stephen J. Ross had the honor of cutting the ribbon, marking the official dedication and re-opening of the Volunteer hub.

Stephen J. Ross, founder and president of Ross Builders, who passed away in 2018 was a big supporter of United Way of Greater Lorain County and its work towards community transformation.

The Volunteer Engagement Hub is located in the warehouse attached to United Way’s Lorain headquarters, 642 Broadway, and serves as the center of the agency’s volunteer activities.

The hub houses donated items for Collect. Sort. Deliver, Free Little Libraries, and various volunteer projects.

Thank you to Meijer for sponsoring the event and Ross Builders for your continued commitment to our community.
