SEAC’s Campus & Community Outreach Committee Conducts School Supply Drive to Benefit Akron Area Children

The first annual School Supply Drive organized by SEAC/s new Campus & Community Outreach Committee was conducted from Monday, August 2nd thru Friday, August 6th.

The drive benefits Summit County Children’s Services (SCCS), an organization that provides more than 1,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to local children.

Campus support was tremendous! Donations of glue sticks, crayons, folders, backpacks and more flooded in over the week long drive. Thanks to the efforts of more than 15 campus departments and members of the campus community, many Akron area children will be able to experience the excitement of a bright new backpack full of the supplies they need to help them succeed!

The drive successfully generated more than twenty five boxes stuffed with school supplies, enough to completely fill two vehicles for delivery to SCCS.

Thanks to all who were able to help from your SEAC Campus & Community Outreach Committee!!
