It’s the season of giving and a time when many people send gifts to charitable organizations, including the Brecksville Honor Tree.
The Brecksville Honor Tree is a metal sculpture that graces the north wall of the Gathering Room at Brecksville’s Human Services Center. Its leaves are engraved with the names of Brecksville citizens, past and present, who have contributed to Brecksville’s 200-year reputation as a wonderful town to call home.
Residents can memorialize a distinguished individual or family, past or present, by purchasing one or more engraved leaves. Organizations also can consider recognizing a past or present member who has contributed to Brecksville. The cost is $250 per leaf and proceeds are directed to The Brecksville Honor Tree Association, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
The funds are used to help residents, typically seniors, who have fallen on difficult times and need a significant helping hand.
