Men's Shelter Super Bowl Watch Party

In early February, over 80 Men’s Shelter residents gathered at Trinity Cathedral Church to partake in a Super Bowl Watch Party! Shelter residents enjoyed camaraderie and delicious meals provided by Elegant Difference Catering. The event was sponsored by Bishop Mark Hollinsworth and Sue Hollinsworth, The Episcopal Diocese of Ohio, and Trinity Cathedral. 

Thank you to everyone who helped sponsor the event and our amazing volunteers for making this happen. We can’t wait to continue the tradition next year! 

Thank you Fr. Kevin K. Wilbert for the great photos.

Cleveland Browns Provide Meanngful Shelter Meals

Residents at the Men’s Shelter were treated to a meal with a special twist from the Browns as part of their Cleveland Huddle program. For the third year in a row, the Browns purchased meals from local Black-owned restaurants and donated them to shelters in northeast Ohio.

This year, B & M BBQ catered the meal at 2100 Lakeside, and it was a hit! This important initiative is meaningful because LMM encourages supplier diversity, and of course, because our residents deserve a great BBQ!
