(Cleveland, Ohio) – The “Bulldog Buddies” mentoring program, a collaboration between the Renaissance
Retirement Campus (an Eliza Jennings community in Olmsted Township) and Falls-Lenox Primary School
(Olmsted Falls City Schools), was recognized this week with the Excellence in Volunteer Service award
from LeadingAge Ohio. The award honors a LeadingAge Ohio member volunteer or volunteer
program that makes a positive, lasting impact on their organization or community.
“Bulldog Buddies” pairs residents of the Renaissance Retirement Campus with first-through third-grade
students, who have special needs or circumstances, in a mentoring relationship focused on increasing the
students’ academic success. Named after the school district’s mascot, the program pairs a “Big Buddy” with
a “Little Buddy” who meet weekly during the entire school year.
“Big Buddies are positive, stable role models who demonstrate kindness, trustworthiness, and integrity,” said
School Counselor Angela Butto. “The Bulldog Buddies program creates positive memories and experiences
that influence the students far beyond the classroom.” “The culture and mission of Eliza Jennings, and each of our communities, promotes giving back and serving others,” said Eliza Jennings President and CEO Richard M. Boyson Jr. “This resident-driven program aligns
beautifully with that mission. It is gratifying to be recognized by LeadingAge Ohio for this innovative community
outreach program.”
“This program is a great example of the innovation fostered when organizations with different needs connect,”
said Kathryn Brod, President and CEO of LeadingAge Ohio. “Schools have a need, senior service providers
have a need, and this is a win-win for all parties.” The award was presented during the LeadingAge Ohio Resident Celebration Luncheon on September 14 as
part of the LeadingAge Ohio 2017 Annual Conference and Trade Show. Founded in 1937, LeadingAge Ohio is a member driven organization that represents approximately 400 longterm care facilities located in more than 150 Ohio towns and cities, as well as those providing housing services
and ancillary health care across a continuum of settings. Through a recent merger with Midwest Care Alliance,
LeadingAge Ohio’s members represent home care and hospice services to an even greater degree than ever
before. Member organizations are estimated to serve more than 400,000 elderly Ohioans and employ more
than 35,000 persons statewide. Members are sponsored by religious, fraternal, private and government
organizations committed to providing quality services for their residents and for older persons in the community
at large.
