The Berea Police Department is proud to partner with the Maryssa’s Mission Foundation to collect new, unwrapped gifts valued at $5 or more for our area children’s hospitals. The Maryssa's Mission Foundation (MMF) aspires to change and positively impact the lives of families facing the challenges of caring for a medically fragile child. The MMF does this by focusing on three primary services where children's hospital resources fall short of the needs of admitted families. The MMF has procedures and partnerships to ensure the families of medically fragile families are receiving MMF Signature Blessing Bags, Delicious Meals, and Temporary Housing in some areas.
From November 1st-30th, community members and businesses wanting to help can take their new, unwrapped gifts to the Berea Police lobby and place them in a collection box.
Donations will also be accepted at the MMF annual Breakfast with Santa Fundraiser on Saturday December 9th, hosted by Applebee’s in Strongsville. Tickets for that fundraiser are $10.00 each. Picture opportunity with Santa and breakfast is included. Gift ideas include but are not limited to: Suggested toy items include: boy and girl action figures (paw patrol, princesses, etc.) Hot wheel cars, Barbie Dolls, infant toys, nail polish, activity books, etc.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. (Gift and monetary donations may be tax deductible based on your particular-tax situation*).
