IMPORTANT NOTE – Representatives of Amanda and her daughter, Michelle and Gina are encouraging supporters to make monetary donations as the best way to support their immediate and future anticipated needs.
We know northeast Ohio is a generous community, and so donations given in excess of what the women and their families need will go to other area resource ministries to support those in need in northeast Ohio. These ministries will be identified and coordinated by the Family Ministry Center. Some of the groups that will be involved include: Love Inc of Western Cuyahoga, Joy Cares and the Well.
Gift suggestion at this time:
* Gift cards for clothing, restaurants, food or services.
* If you want to give something to the survivors, please give gifts of new purchases or gently used items.

Please understand it may be weeks or even months before they are ready to accept your donation and utilize the service being offered.
