This year, the floor under Sedlak’s Christmas tree is lined with presents for the children at Beech Brook, a behavioral health agency in Pepper Pike, Ohio.
Over the years, Sedlak has supported a variety of charities during the holiday season. “We, as an organization, realize how blessed we all are and always want to give back to our community,” says Human Resources Manager Kris Costanzo, who has helped coordinate Sedlak’s charitable giving in the past. “Our associates have always been extremely generous and giving in the spirit of the season.”
This year, after driving by Beech Brook on her way to work, Sedlak President Kara Ashby was curious about the organization and wanted to find out if Sedlak could help.
Beech Brook, which got its start as Cleveland’s first orphanage in 1852, offers a variety of services to support more than 15,000 children, teens and families each year. These services include foster care and adoption, outpatient counseling, school-based mental health services, community-based services for at-risk youth, early childhood services, and mentoring.
All of the presents this year were donated by Sedlak associates, who chose the items from a wish list provided by Beech Brook. This list included traditional toys, such as action figures and dolls, and essential items such as hoodies, earbuds, and flat irons. The gifts were presented to a group of underprivileged children ages 1-12 at Beech Brook’s Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, December 15.
