Brook Park Community Church of the Brethren
16845 Holland Road, Brook Park
In 1992, Audrey's Outreach began as the dream of Audrey Telep, the founder of the clothing giveaway. Audrey felt there was a need to help those in need by collecting donations and holding a free clothing giveaway. When the clothing giveaway first began, it served averages of 90-100 attendees. In recent years, the clothing giveaway has grown to serving averages of over 300 attendees and is held 4-5 times a year.
Brook Park Church of the Brethren challenged themselves to "Dream Big" and established additional programs including the God's Green Acres (Community Garden), community meals, and the summer meal program for children and seniors. God's Green Acres has produced delicious produce for the past five summers.
In 2011, Audrey's Outreach Food Pantry began a partnership with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. The food pantry began purchasing much of the food for pantry from the Greater Cleveland Food Bank in 2012. Audrey's Outreach Food Pantry is the only food pantry in Brook Park and serves people in Cuyahoga County.
