Hudson is Ready to Help!

Hudson Ohio Helps

Hudson is filled with groups and individuals ready to help during the COVID-19 crisis. Many are making masks and other personal protective equipment, donating to local food banks, and watching out for their neighbors during this stressful time.

Signs promoting contact information for two groups ready to help have popped up across town. In a collaborative community effort, Hudson Community Foundation, The Burton D. Morgan Foundation, Peg’s Foundation, the City of Hudson, and a number of volunteers donated and granted funds supporting this effort to make sure Hudson residents who need help know who to call. Locally-owned Splott Graphics supported the effort by printing the signs.

Hudson Community Service Association’s (HCSA) Helping Hands and Food Pantry have been helping Hudson residents in times of need since the end of World War II. HCSA was incorporated in 1944 to assist and provide for returning U.S. Armed Forces veterans of Hudson and their families. Wanting to see every member of our growing community of 2,500 cared for, the founders of HCSA began contacting non-profit organizations in town and inviting them to join together in a forum that would enhance their ability to identify community needs and develop strategies to meet those needs. Today there are still approximately 30 organizations that are members of the HCSA.

In time of crisis, Helping Hands assists Hudson residents with immediate needs of food, clothing, gas and/or utilities, and referrals to area agencies for longer-term assistance. The Food Pantry provides an emergency food supply to Hudson residents in need, and can also provide contact information for other food sources in the area. If you would like to donate, monetary donations may be sent to HCSA, a 501c3 organization, at PO Box 1472, Hudson, OH 44236, with Helping Hands or Food Pantry in the memo line. Visit the HCSA website for more information about these programs, or call 330-671-9457.

A brand-new organization called Hudson Ohio Helps emerged in the early days of the COVID-19 crisis. A group of Hudson residents who felt the need to help joined together to make a difference. Their website offers a place for both volunteers and those in need to sign up. The group offers free errands, delivery and pick-up, among other things, to those who sign up for assistance. Hudson Ohio Helps can be reached at 330-362-2524 or visit HudsonOHHelps.org for more information.

Thank you to the Hudson community for joining together during this time and helping others. #HudsonTogether
