We Need Your Help! HIP-Cuyahoga Care Pack Drive for Neighbors in Need

HIP-Cuyahoga is partnering with Philemon Community Baptist Church to help neighbors in need.  We are encouraging all of the partners in the HIP-Cuyahoga network to help collect personal care and hygiene products to be given along with the fresh food pantry bags. Items will be collected from host sites and then assembled into care packs on August 17th. On August 18th, volunteers and 93.1 WZAK will be distributing fresh food and the care packs to neighbors in need. Thanks to members of Helping Hands Development Corporation, Creating Greater Destinies, A Vision of Change, and other local organizations for taking the lead on this effort!

HIP-Cuyahoga partners with WZAK and DJ Haz Matt to promote health at the Family Unity in Park

HIP-Cuyahoga teamed up with 93.1 WZAK’s DJ Haz Matt to spread the news about HIP-Cuyahoga on Saturday at the Family Unity in the Park festival at Luke Easter Park, who is working every day to help make Cuyahoga County a healthier place to live. Haz interviewed Ms. Dee, a community health ambassador for HIP-Cuyahoga, who shared information about the Chronic Disease Self Management Program, finding hidden salt in food to help control blood pressure, the Good Food Here program, and encouraged others to get involved.

DJ Haz Matt and Ms Felecia, a local zumba instructor helped encourage the festival participants to get up and get moving. Zumba is one of many activities that are offered at #healthmattershere sites throughout Cuyahoga County.

HIP-Cuyahoga is creating opportunities to be healthier. One of the ways is to work with community partners to open their doors and become #healthmattershere facilities. To promote healthy opportunities that are popping up in Cuyahoga County, Ro Digga from Z 107.9 will visit this FREE Zumba class. Ro Digga will be doing a Facebook Live interview with some folks that helped bring this opportunity to the community and even some of the participants! Will that be you? We hope you can join this fun fitness class! Click here for the flyer.

Franklin D. Roosevelt Academy is one of several facilities throughout Cuyahoga County that have signed policies or “shared use agreements” that state that they will open their doors to allow healthy activities occur at their sites. Churches, schools, community centers, even a dry cleaner have pledged to help the community get healthier. The current list of locations with these policies is on our Shared Use page. Please contact the specific site you are interested in to find out the program schedule. We welcome new facilities to join this group. Please call Erika at 216-368-2263 to learn what it takes.
