How to Help

We distributed Passover Food Packages to over 300 families this year

Thanks to all of you who helped make it possible!

Over $60,000 worth of food and other staples were distributed in honor of Passover this year!  More than 300 orders for subsidized holiday clothing were filled.  Thank you to the hundreds of volunteers who helped make it happen!

We need a core group of dedicated volunteers like you to help the Cleveland Chesed Center keep up with our growth!  See what YOU can do to make a difference in the lives of families who are struggling.
