Tri-C Cares About Our Community

Each year the students of Cuyahoga Community College’s Web Design and Development program build a website for a local non-profit, charitable organization.

The Middleburg Heights Food Pantry site was initially designed and built, by Tri-C students in 2014. The current site has been redesigned and rebuilt using WordPress. This allows MHPantry to update their own content, and now works on phones & tablets.

The elite team of VCIM students from Cuyahoga Community College is each truly appreciative of the opportunity to develop and display their web design skills, as well as to assist the Middleburg Heights Food Pantry, and the vital work they do.
