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!!
