Claridon Community Helps is a non-profit organization that works together to assist families and individuals in Claridon and surrounding communities who may have come upon a difficult time. We are passionate about helping others, improving their situation and providing the best possible resources available.
We believe in “Neighbors helping Neighbors.”
In 2009 a group of people came together to see how we could help a neighbor in need. In working with the person, local agencies and businesses we were able to resolve the need.
In 2011 we began our free Community Dinners on the third Tuesday of each month.
As we continued to grow, we became a 501(c)(3) organization in 2012.
In 2019, we added "Now That's What I'm Talking About!" summer lunch program for children in the Claridon, Burton, Troy, Thompson and Montville area.
In 2020 we expanded the summer lunch program to the area covered by Cardinal School District and Newbury township.
In 2022, we expanded the lunch program yet again to also include Chardon School District
