Each summer, more than 1,000 children in the care of Summit County Children Services are given backpacks filled with school supplies – all donated. However, because of limitations on the agency’s use of funds for this type of purchase, the agency depends on the generosity of the community’s organizations and individual donors in order to provide school supplies to the children we serve. CLICK HERE for a list of needed item.
A donation of $25 will purchase a backpack and school supplies for the youngest children. A donation of $35 will provide essentials for a middle school or high school student – including a scientific calculator.
Monetary donations can be made online through PayPal (click on Donor/Volunteer Opportunities and use the “Donate Now” button). Individuals can also mail a donation to the agency, 264 S. Arlington St., Akron, 44306, ATTN: Community Relations. Checks can be made payable to Summit County Children Services.
