May 28, 2020, North Royalton – Blossom Hill was featured on News Channel 5 for its program, “Bags of Joy.” The supply bags were assembled by the individuals at Blossom Hill’s houses in North Royalton and sent to children in the area who will be starting school in the fall.

“During this COVID time, their life has changed dramatically. Our individuals are very used to routine. They are very used to their vocational activities,” said Ron DeVerse, the program director at Blossom Hill. “You see a change in our individuals when their routine is broken. We thought of an idea, something to keep them busy… something constructive as well as something that could help the community.”
