West Side Catholic Center receives grant for playground

(Plain Press, March 2007) The West Side Catholic Center, located at W. 32nd and Lorain Avenue, was one of four Northeast Ohio non-profit organizations recently awarded a grant by Ronald McDonald House Charities to help provide services to children.

The West Side Catholic Center will use the grant to purchase and install a safe and fun playground structure at their Women & Children’s Shelter.  The Shelter houses 32 women and children, providing a full range of transitional services that assist women and their children in moving from homelessness to stable housing and employment.

McDonald’s Owner/Operator Stephen Payne, who owns several McDonald’s restaurants in Northeast Ohio, endorsed the grant application.
