Because Giving is Better than Getting!

It's already the holiday season, and we're getting excited to share the peace and joy of Christmas with our clients.  If you'd like to be a part of the celebration, we welcome you to take part by providing any of the specified Christmas donations listed below.  Please call or email our Laura's Home donations coordinator at 216-472-5500 ext. 336 with any questions or to communicate a special drop-off time.

We also invite you to be a part of our Christmas Bash on Saturday morning, December 15! Visit the Christmas Bash page to learn more and sign up.

Gifts that Have Twice the Impact

We also invite you to give the intangible gift of new life through our all new Holiday Gift Catalog. Purchase year-round essential care for our clients such as meals, casework, and childcare. And if you're giving to a specific cause on behalf of a loved one, you'll have a chance to print and customize a beautiful card for them to open in your gift exchange! Check out giving categories today.
