Memory Bag Program

Strongsville Kiwanis started our Memory Bag Program in 2002 as another way to serve the children of our community. Memory Bag is funded by Strongsville Kiwanis and overseen by members of the Strongsville School System.

Working with teachers and counselors, we are informed when a child experiences the death of someone close to them.  A Memory Bag is prepared that includes a book, a journal, writing materials, and other age appropriate items (such as a Teddy Bear) along with a sympathy card.  The Memory Bag is given to the child by their counselor or teacher. 

To date, we have provided over 750 Memory Bags to Strongsville students from Pre-School through 12th Grade.
