Ward 3 Quick Update November 23, 2014

Ward 3 Resident,

Just wanted to give you a quick update on some important items and upcoming events before the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Resident Feedback Needed for Online Sidewalk Survey
On November 6th, representatives from Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) gave a presentation at North Royalton City Hall pertaining to the North Royalton Alternative Transportation Plan. At the end of the presentation, they distributed a survey and asked that residents complete the survey and return to NOACA. The results of the survey will assist in determining priority improvements in the city, including sidewalks. If you were unable to attend the meeting and would like to participate in the survey study, please Click Here to complete the survey. Please also share with your friends, neighbors throughout our ward, and the whole city to participate too by giving them the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NRTransSurvey

Donations to the City Food Bank
As a result of Federal Government cuts to programs that assist those in need that have occurred over the last year or so, the city Office on Aging and Human Services has experienced an increase in the number of applicants applying for emergency food. The city Office on Aging and Human Services is asking for your help during this holiday season so that we can provide at least enough food for a holiday meal. Any support you can provide whether it be gift cards to local grocery stores, canned food items, or even monetary donations would be a great help. Check donations can be made out to the North Royalton-Kiwanis Food Bank Trust.  All donations of any kind can be dropped off at the Office on Aging and Human Services, 13500 Ridge Rd., North Royalton, Ohio 44133. For more information please contact Judy Willey at 440-582-6333.

Royal Redeemer’s Annual Care and Share Thanksgiving Dinner
Since 1989 Royal Redeemer Lutheran Church has provided meals for the community on Thanksgiving Day located at 11680 Royalton Rd. Once again they will be serving a free turkey dinner from 1-4 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Meals are delivered to shut-ins. Please call ahead for reservations and deliveries (if possible). For more information contact the church office at 440-237-7958 or click here.
