24 January Brunswick, Ohio - January 2019 January 24, 2019 By The Fraternal Order of Eagles Ohio 0 300 community volunteers gathered at the Brunswick Aerie #3505 to participate in the organization’s 42nd annual Christmas Baskets program. Diane Bokar, event chairwoman, said roughly $20,000 was raised to help provide 27 families in need with a combination of food staples, gift cards and Christmas presents. “The list is pretty substantial, enough food to fill their pantries for a good while, probably two to three months, plus the gift cards to replenish when they need to,” Bokar said. In addition to the food supplies and Christmas presents, each child also received a winter coat, hat and pair of gloves. Brunswick Hills Police Chief Tim Sopkovich said the police department enjoys a healthy relationship with the Brunswick Eagles. “The Eagles help us out immensely,” Sopkovich said. “They fill up our food banks, so we utilize this food all year-round and give it back to people that are in need in our community.” From the January 2019 People Helping People newsletter.
