Academy of Arts and Sciences Aims to Spread Holiday Cheer to the Less Fortunate, with a Donation Drive for Two Local Homeless Shelters

LORAIN, OH. – In the true spirit of giving, the Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAS) will be collecting new toys and non-perishable goods for two local homeless shelters, this Holiday season.

From December 1 to 21, AAS will be collecting contributions to go towards the Blessing House, which cares for children and Haven House, a shelter that takes in Lorain families in need. On December 21 the AAS Girl Scout Troop #664, will hand-deliver the brand new toys and food to the shelters.

“You can help us to make this a blessed Holiday season for the less fortunate, by placing donated items under our Christmas tree,” said Joell Mullen-Liscano, chief administrative officer for AAS. “Together we will make a difference.”
