Hunger program: This will be the 39th year of the Yuletide Hunger Program, which provides food to low-income families in Brecksville, Broadview Heights, Seven Hills and Independence.

Because of the virus, schools in Brecksville-Broadview Heights will stop collecting food this year to reduce the amount of hands involved in handling food. Instead, the participants are asked to bring groceries to the respective senior centers in their city. Brecksville is at 2 Community Dr., Broadview Heights at 9543 Broadview Rd., Independence at 6363 Blessed Dr. and Seven Hills at 7325 Summit View Dr.

Also, and more importantly, the Yuletide Committee is soliciting cash donations by check to the City of Brecksville with the Yuletide Hunger Program on the memo line. The reason the checks payable to Brecksville is because it is the treasure trove of the Christmas season. The money received is used to buy gift cards so recipients can buy their own food.

Sheet pick-up: Brecksville’s Curbside Leaf Pick-Up Program has started. Don’t rake your leaves on the sidewalk. They are intended to be stacked along your tree lawn area, but not on the road surface. Do not mix other materials such as branches, small trunks, or anything other than leaves. Every year there are problems when residents knowingly or accidentally dispose of other garden waste with the leaves. Also, keep in mind that the city shot starts at one end of the city, moves to the other end, and then starts over.

Bravery Tomorrow: Construction trailers are moving to the Sherwin Williams property in Valor Acres as they are about to begin the initial stages of their new research and development facility. DiGeronimo is currently laying the sewer that runs through the Valor Acres property. There is a lot going on at Valor Acres. The DiGeronimo company continues to work with the planning committee on the residential phase of Valor Acres. Plans for the infrastructure to be installed at all stages of Valor Acres development are moving forward.
