2023 Hometown heroes
Tony grew up in our community, graduated from Brush High School, and has chosen to continue to live in and give back to South Euclid. In addition to serving on volunteer positions in the city since the early 90s and on City Council in 2010-11, he has organized an annual Clean-Up South Euclid for multiple groups over several years and initiated a Youth Sports camp that is free for children ages 8-14.
Notably, he founded Rock the Block, South Euclid’s biggest party, and serves as its current Committee Chairman. The majority of his volunteer focus and energy, however, is channeled into his role as President of the Browns Barkers, an official Browns Backers Club with a vision to support those in need in our community.
When not engaged in volunteer work, Tony lends his support to Browns Barkers events at Black Forest. He manages all of this while working full time in retail leadership, where he uses the skills honed through 35 years of experience to serve the South Euclid Community.
Tony and his wife of 17 years, Debbie, reside on Felton Road. Together they have three children, Nicole, Matt, and Gabbie and one grandson – Emmett.
Carol & Dennis Fiorelli
Individually and as a couple, Dennis and Carol have had a positive, constructive impact on the common good of South Euclid.
Dennis was elected by the citizens of South Euclid to City Council At-large and elected by fellow Council members as Council President, applying his business acumen to advance city services and South Euclid finances. He has served our city and the greater community as Treasurer of the Cleveland Cultural Gardens Federation, Director of the Saints Margaret and Gregory Federal Credit Union, as a coach for South Euclid Girls softball, and as a member of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish Advisory Committee. A retired Vice President and Director at Keybank, Dennis is a fourth degree member of the Knights of Columbus - Sacred Heart of Jesus Council, a member of the Italian Sons and Daughters of America – University Lodge, and is a South Euclid Citizens Police Academy graduate.
Carol is a lifelong South Euclid resident who volunteered for six years on One South Euclid’s Board, and as chair of the Revitalization Committee, played a vital role in the success of our Build|Grow|Thrive program, Neighborhood Grant program, and revitalizing the Downtown Mayfield Green District. A former mathematics teacher and retired Keybank Executive, Carol has served the greater Cleveland community as a member of the Gilmour Academy Women’s Club, past president of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Women’s Guild and as a math tutor for the Cleveland School of the Arts. She is a current member of the Board of Trustees for Womankind.
Together, Dennis and Carol have lived in South Euclid for 40 years. They have two grown children, Julie (husband Nate), and Amanda (husband John), and two grandchildren - Leo and Luca.
Kosher Food Pantry
Not everyone who drives by 2004 S. Green Road in South Euclid realizes what goes on there. Inside the small older building and two white trailers at the top of an asphalt driveway, an important and impressive battle is taking place: The Cleveland Kosher Food Pantry (KFP) is fighting food insecurity in our own community.
Established more than 40 years ago by Executive Director Sarah Alevsky’s grandparents, Rabbi and Mrs. Zalman Kazen, KFP believes that Tikun Olam (Hebrew for “repairing the world” — a central principle of Judaism implying acts performed to make the world a better place) begins here with us.
A partner agency of both Greater Cleveland Food Bank and Hunger Network, KFP is the only local nonprofit whose sole purpose is to supply food to people experiencing hunger and who uphold the Jewish dietary laws of kashrut, meaning they exclusively eat kosher items. The Pantry provides food, however, to anyone in need — no one is turned away.
KFP volunteers carefully pack bags of food to distribute at weekly drive-thru pick-ups which assist about 250 area families. They also deliver food door-to-door, with dignity and compassion, bi-monthly to nearly 1,600 senior citizens in 10 local low-income apartment buildings.
