Each year, Summit County Children Services counts on community donations to brighten up the season for children in agency custody by providing them with festive Easter baskets. This year donations of Easter items are once again needed – especially for infants, school-aged and older boys.
Monetary donations are certainly welcome – but for those preferring to donate Easter already assembled and wrapped baskets, here are some suggestions of items to include: for school-aged boys’ baskets: small sports balls or outdoor toys; cars and trucks; coloring/activity books and markers, books, candy and chocolate bunnies; for pre-teen boys: hand-held games, books, wallets, gadgets, small games/puzzles, sports drinks, candy and chocolate bunnies. CLICK HERE for a complete list of suggested Easter basket items for children of all ages.
The Summit County Children Services 'Clothing Center' – which provides new and gently worn clothing of all types throughout the year for needy client families served by the agency – is asking area residents for donations of mittens as well as new and gently used winter coats for school-age children (roughly size 6-16 for both boys and girls).
Regular hours of The Clothing Center are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Those interested in making a donation after hours or on weekends can make use of the convenient large blue donation bin recently installed just outside The Clothing Center building on the Summit County Children Services campus. Simply come to the agency, located at the intersection of South Arlington Street and Martin Avenue, and follow the access road to the security entrance.
For more information please call the Clothing Center at (330) 379-1822.
