Thank you so much to Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank for bringing their Pop-Up Pantry to Medina County Park District's Hidden Hollow Camp yesterday.

Feeling proud...and a little sore today. ;) #medinacountystrong

03/25/2021

The support of the Ohio National Guard during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been critical, not only for Feeding Medina County, but for our partners at Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank, our colleagues at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and other operations across the state. We cannot express enough gratitude to all of the guards who have helped us at our distributions and who have brought deliveries of food to our warehouse. When the guard says that "selfless service" is one of their core values, they mean it! Thank you Medina - Ohio Army National Guard Recruiting.

Marking a year of COVID-19 mission support:
March 23 marked the one-year anniversary of the Ohio National Guard’s first mission as part of the state’s response to COVID-19, when members reported for duty at food banks across the Buckeye State. Since then, a total of 5,600 Soldiers, Airmen, and members of the Ohio Military Reserve and Ohio Naval Militia — nearly a third of the entire Ohio National Guard force — have answered the call to help their communities during nearly 70 different missions.

    Medina Sunrise Rotary Receives $50,000 Anonymous Donation The Medina Sunrise Rotary Club is deeply grateful to receive this unexpected and selfless donation, especially during these difficult times of the coronavirus pandemic. It was surely given in the same spirit of Service Above Self to which Rotary aspires. This donation will allow Medina Sunrise Rotary to carry on serving its mission of “continuing to make a difference in the lives of children in our community and beyond, through our time, talents and treasures.” "What great news this morning of this wonderful, anonymous $50,000 donation to our club!" exclaimed Toby Butt, a distinguished Paul Harris Fellow from the Medina Sunrise Rotary Club. I hope that every Rotarian and every beneficiary of our community service knows that this generous contribution comes from the heart - and represents ALL of us. "It is an honor to belong to an organization of people like Rotarians who have shared the same core values for over 115 years. One that shares their resources and skills, uniting with others to create sustainable change by meeting needs in their communities, in the world and in themselves. How fortunate for the families and children in Medina County." -- Patricia A. Myers, Rotary Ohio District 6630 Governor, 2020-2021. # # #
