Each summer, more than 1,400 children in the care of Summit County Children Services are given backpacks filled with school supplies – all donated. 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 many of the children we serve.
Please consider making a financial contribution that will provide a backpack filled with school supplies to the following:
- $25 for an elementary school student
- $35 for a middle school student
- $40 for a high school student (includes a scientific calculator)
Monetary donations can be made online through PayPal (use the "Donate Now" button). Individuals can also mail a donation to the agency, 264 S. Arlington Street, Akron, Ohio 44306, ATTN: Community Relations. Checks can be made payable to Summit County Children Services.
