Volunteer opportunity with NYP at Norwood Service League

If anyone is interested in a fantastic volunteer opportunity, the Norwood Service League is putting together Christmas food baskets for local families in need on Monday, Dec. 15, 6-9 PM. They will be providing 3 lb. hams and other items to make a great Christmas meal for Norwood families. Please contact food closet manager, Connie Jones, at 513-315-0390 if you are interested. If you are unable to participate but would still like to contribute, NYP will be collecting money to assist in the purchase of 300 apples and 300 oranges that will also be provided to the families. A $5 or $10 donation will go a long way, but ANY help would be appreciated. Contact Andy Scarpitti at if you'd like to contribute.

Don't forget about NYP’s first annual "Thanks for Giving" Coat Drive. It's never too late to collect coats/blankets/gloves or just donate your extras to a needy Norwood family. The group will still collect from your house if you'd like, or bring the items to the “Thanks for Giving” Happy Hour on Wednesday, December 17 at 6:00 p.m. at Gordo’s at 4328 Montgomery Rd.

Also, Norwood Young Professionals have been trying to put together a new logo for months now and have narrowed the choices down to five. Please take a few seconds and go to the NYP website to vote once for your favorite. The winning logo will be official starting with the new year.
