A little help from our friends


It is always heartwarming when someone sees a need and steps up to try and find a way to fill it.

That is exactly what Ginny Barna did! Ginny’s brother, Chip, lives at the Clifton home, where eight men with disabilities reside. This summer, thanks to some very generous donors, the kitchen received a major facelift with new cabinets, counter tops and floor. Unfortunately, there were no funds to purchase new appliances.

This is where Ginny stepped in! She contacted her friends and family members and asked them to donate what they could to purchase appliances for Clifton. Eleven generous donations have been made so far totaling $685!

New Avenues was able to purchase a new stove using $600 of the funds, and Ginny is determined to keep asking until we have the funds to purchase a new dishwasher and refrigerator.

Please consider helping Ginny. A donation of any size will be greatly appreciated and put to good use! You can mail a donation to the attention of Linda Malicki, Development Specialist, at 17608 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, OH 44112, make a donation through our website at, or contact Linda directly at 216-481-1907 x223. Please make sure to note that your donation is for the Clifton home kitchen!

We’ll get by with a little more help from our friends!
