Our charity outreach committee needs your help!

ACAR’s Community Outreach and Charity Committee is doing a year-long project called “Necessity Boxes.” We are collecting shoe boxes throughout the year. Three times this year, the “Necessity Boxes” will be filled with specific items to be donated to various groups in our communities.

Our first donation will be going to the Domestic Violence & Child Advocacy Center. We are planning to have the boxes ready for delivery by April 15.

Listed below are some of the items we are collecting:

  • Gift Cards to Target, Walmart, Giant Eagle, Pat Catan’s or Michaels
  • Used cell phones
  • Kleenex
  • Body Lotion
  • Diaper Cream/Ointment
  • Baby Lotion
  • Baby Wash
  • Crayola Model Magic (White: non-toxic air drying clay)
  • Canvas boards of various sizes for Art Therapy
  • Paint Brushes (for Art Therapy)
  • Acrylic paint (for Art Therapy)
  • New towels and wash clothes
  • Clorox cleaning wipes
  • Laundry detergent
  • Pocket Folders

We have a few drop off areas if you are able to donate any of the above items. Please contact Jane Shubert – ACAR Staff Liaison at 216-525-4837 for the closest drop off location.

If you are not able to donate any of these items, you may send in a check to ACAR – 9100 South Hills Blvd. Suite 150, Broadview Heights, OH, 44147. Please put in the memo portion – “Necessity Box” donation and we will be happy to fill in the items needed.
