This Tree of Life Event is a celebration of life for families that have lost a loved one due to opioid overdose or gun violence on our city streets. We will honor 15 families annually in the Northeast Ohio area with a “Tree of Life” dedicated to their beloved family members. We acknowledge that your loved one had value, and they should be remembered and celebrated.
Request a Tree. If your family was affected by opioid overdose or violence, RSVP to request a tree and to participate in this tree planting and celebration. Each family will be supported by an OSU Master Gardener in the planting of the Tree of Life at the Family Life Center on September 23, 2023.
Keepsake necklace. Additionally, every family will receive a keepsake necklace. The trees and necklaces are gifts to you, free of charge.
RSVP: All are welcome. All visitors/participants are welcome; please indicate the number of people on the RSVP. Register by clicking here.
The Remember Love Recovery Project will lead us on September 23rd to make Recovery Flags to destigmatize addiction disorder while emphasizing that the opposite of addiction is human connection. No art experience necessary! We invite participants from all walks of life in artmaking for awareness, healing, connecting, and social action. https://www.rememberloverecovery.org/
The CLC hosts subject specific events throughout the year that align with our respective Community Programs. Our non-profit will also have immersive ways to connect through public events and fundraisers periodically.
