In conjunction with the cities of Cuyahoga Falls, Stow and Munroe Falls, Silver Lake is participating in a Cold Weather Gear Drive to help the homeless. Donations will be accepted now through January 15, 2021. To kick off the drive, we will hold a drive-thru campaign this Saturday, November 21, in the Village Hall parking lot from 10am until 1 pm. Please participate. How great would it be if every resident in the Village contributed at least one, hopefully more than one, item to this drive! Items requested include new thermal socks, new stocking caps and/or full mask style, new L, XL, and XXL men’s and women’s long underwear, new or lightly used blankets, hand and feet warmers, new or slightly used sleeping bags, 2-person dome style tents, new or slightly used thermal gloves, 10′ x 12′ brown or camo tarps, One Day Akron Metro Bus Passes, and money. Checks can be made out to Peter Maurin Center and either brought to Village Hall or mailed to Peter Maurin Center, P.O. Box 1105, Hudson, Ohio 44236. The Maurin Center will handle the distribution of all items donated. The streets get really cold in the winter; these people desperately need our help. Thank you in advance for your help.
