UH joins with USO to assist Coast Guard families
Due to the federal government shutdown, U.S. Coast Guard families are among those not receiving paychecks. The USO of Northern Ohio is teaming up with local governments, including University Heights, to collect specific items during the shutdown, to assist local Coast Guard families.
University Heights City Hall is now a drop-off location. During regular business hours (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), you may assist Coast Guard families by dropping off the following items: non-perishable foods, personal hygiene products, household cleaning items, laundry soap and supplies, baby diapers, paper products, grocery gift cards and gas cards.
Mike Cook is the communications and civic engagement coordinator for University Heights.
