Annual Bremec fundraiser will benefit HRRC

Mike Gaynier of HRRC receives a check from Debi Jenks of Bremec on the Heights Garden Center.

After this very long, cold winter, yards and gardens here in the Heights will undoubtedly need some spring sprucing-up. Those in need of lawn and garden supplies—or just in search of something green—can support Home Repair Resource Center (HRRC) of Cleveland Heights by shopping at Bremec on the Heights between Monday, April 21 and Sunday, May 4.

When shoppers present an HRRC voucher at the register, Bremec on the Heights Garden Center, 13410 Cedar Road, will donate a portion of those purchases to HRRC. Even those shoppers who may not yet be ready to take home plants and supplies can benefit HRRC by purchasing gift cards using a voucher during the two-week fundraising period. They can then use the gift cards at a later date.

HRRC trustees and volunteers will be at Bremec the weekends of April 26 and May 3, to hand out vouchers and information about HRRC, as well as answer questions and provide assistance to shoppers.

Shoppers can clip the voucher on page 20 of the April print editor of the Heights Observer, and bring it with them to Bremec. Vouchers are also available on HRRC’s website,

This is the fifth year that Bremec on the Heights has supported HRRC’s work to help keep older homes in good repair.
