Now in its 38th year the Yuletide Hunger Program has been reaching out to those who are less fortunate.
The program began in 1983 following the death of Brecksville resident Rusty Mansbery. Rusty’s brother Dave wanted to thank his community for the outpouring of help and concern for his family during Rusty’s illness and he wanted to do so in a meaningful way. And so Dave created the Yuletide Hunger Program.
Preparations are underway for the Yuletide Hunger Program as the cities of Brecksville, Broadview Heights, Independence and Seven Hills and the Brecksville-Broadview Heights City School District are collecting food and monetary donations. Monetary donations can be dropped off at or mailed to The Brecksville Human Services Center at
2 Community Drive. Checks payable please to The Yuletide Hunger Program.
Please bring non-perishable food to the Human Services Center in any of the four participating cities or send it to school with your young people. Volunteers are needed including some strong backs! Please call
526-2499 if you can help.
Last year more than 370 people were served.
