Berea BPW Gives Back!

This past November Berea members made donations for the Domestic Violence, what an amazing turn out we had with the donations received.  In December Berea BPW joined forces with the American Legions Post 91 Auxiliary to fill “Buddy Bags” for Homeless Female Veterans.  We filled 30+ bags, with personal care items, scarfs, hats, gloves, socks, blankets and non-perishable food items.   All of the extra items were donated to the VA to share with other Veterans in need


Berea also received a couple of large donations of nail polish from the local Adventure Princesses out of Brookpark, Ohio.   The first donation was donated to the Woman Recovery Centers for their residents.   The second donation will be distributed to other organizations.  Thank you Trail Boss Scott Miller and his daughters Samantha and Marissa for reaching out to us with the generous donation.

Berea Safe and Sound Chair Maria Sater was honored by the City of Berea and Mayor Kleem for her hard work, dedication and heart with the City’s Spirit of Community Award.  All of the other winners were Organizations.   The award is given to outstanding volunteers in the community.
