THANK YOU!

Thank you to all those that attended our Night at the Races fundraiser! We had a great time while also raising funds to support our important services for seniors in the Old Brooklyn area. We are so grateful for all that attended, volunteered, donated, and supported the very FUN night! THANK YOU!

SCR Featured on WKYC

Hardworking volunteers meet at SCR twice a week and use plastic grocery bags to crochet waterproof, lightweight mats for the homeless.  SCR's mat making group was featured on “We The People” last week - watch the segment here! “We The People” is WKYC’S Channel 3 community engagement show with Leon Bibb & Tiffany Tarpley, where we inspire viewers to get out in our community and get involved.  

Save The Date!

Our 4th Annual Night at the Races fundraiser will be Friday October 11, 2019. Get ready for a night of food, drinks, great raffle baskets, and some horse-betting excitement! This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and we’d like your support to benefit SCR’s vital programming - find out here how you can sponsor a race, buy a horse, donate a raffle basket, or, of course attend the event on October 11!
