Name: Rich Hometown: Wickliffe, OH What you do to give back?
**Rich gives back to the community by participating in 2 hours every Tuesday for the food pantry at his Church, the Wickliffe Vineyard. Rich says that him and his Church serve around 90-100 people each week. The food comes from the Cleveland Food Bank which also gives Rich produce to hand out to those in need. Rich is also planning to give his time to their Christmas for Kids program in December in which gifts will be distributed to over 700 kids. Thanks Rich!

Name: Zachary
Hometown: Wheeling, WV What you do to give back? Zachary is a teacher at a low income school in Wheeling, WV. He has been volunteering his time after school once a week teaching students how to play Dungeons and Dragons. Zachary says that this serves as hidden means of intervention to teach Math, Reading, Collaboration and creative Problem Solving. Zachary feels that these skills are all necessary in the 21st century as these students move forward. Zachary runs this after school club with only two other volunteers, and enjoy giving back to these students to help them further grow and learn!

**Ashely gives back to the community, and during the holiday season by running a charity that assists children with everyday essentials in emergency situations all the way to assistance during those in need during the holiday season. In the past 3 years, Ashley said that her and other volunteers for this organization have been able to assist over 300 families. Thank you for your commitment to the community!

Name:  Brandon
Hometown: Cleveland, OH
What you do to give back?
Year round, Brandon gives back to the community by assisting those who are not able to do every day activities around the house. Since some are not able to do everyday things, Brandon feels that it is important to help them with whatever they may need. Because of this, Brandon said that he chooses to give back to the elderly that live in his neighborhood with everyday needs such as yard and house work. Thanks Brandon!

Name: Jeremy
Hometown: Cleveland, OH

Jeremy gives back in a huge way by volunteering 100's of hours a year to helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Along with this, Jeremy also chooses to volunteer to coach youth sports such as football, basketball and baseball. While Jeremy gives so much of his time to giving back to the community he also serves as the Facility Director for juvenile detention center to serve and help our youth. Thanks Jeremy!
