Builders Club holds food drive

The Brady Middle School Builders Club held its annual food drive in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. The 28 student members assisted in collecting more than 1,000 items from students in grades six to eight to donate to the Garfield Church Food Pantry. Sixth-graders donated the most items. The Builders Club is a community service group sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Lander Circle. The amount of food the students gathered will feed dozens of families in need during the holidays.

Students participate in campaign

The Male Minority Leaders of Orange High School took a strong, positive and public stance against violence towards women, significant others and children by showing their support for the White Ribbon Campaign by wearing a white tie or ribbon on Nov. 16. As part of the White Ribbon Campaign, the Male Minority Leaders participated in a public rally that day on the steps of the Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Courthouse. More than 3,000 individuals from across Northeast Ohio participated in this stance against violence.

The Healthy Fathering Collaborative of Greater Cleveland and the Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center encouraged all men to promote the event. The DVCAC is a nonprofit agency providing emergency services to victims of violence through a 24-hour hotline, crisis intervention, shelter, judicial advocacy, support groups and community education.
