The GOOD News
The GOOD News from Thea Bowman Center!
A Virtual Benefit: October 7, 8, and 9.
“Sometimes people think they have to do big things in order to make change. But if each one would light a candle, we’d have tremendous light.”
Sr. Thea Bowman, FSPA
Subscribe to be the first to know when we go live.
For over 50 years, Thea Bowman Center has celebrated light, especially in the darkest of times. Our decades of service and partnership with the people of Mt. Pleasant were put to the test during the pandemic: a perfect storm of grief, loneliness, fear, and hunger. Thanks to our many “candles” of support, we continued to light the way and even strengthened our connections with the southeast Cleveland community we have been privileged to serve for so many years.
Let’s keep it going by adding your candle to our light with a donation to our benefit.
During the three days, on our website, through email and via Facebook, you will hear what’s been happening from program participants, appreciate the broad impact of our services, and learn what is in store moving forward.
As a bonus, restaurant partners will donate a percentage of proceeds from take-out dinners on Oct 9.
You don’t have to cook, and the Center benefits! Contact information for B & M Bar B Que (North Randall location), J. Pistone One World Market & Café, Pearl Asian Kitchen, and Picnic Hill Market Café (they’d like you to order on Oct 7) will be posted on our website.
Special thanks to our generous sponsors for their ongoing support!
