It's a Wrap! This year, we sent out special holiday donations to Project KARE, Pathway Caring for Children, Caring for Kids, and Akron Children's Hospital.
Each donation was specifically catered to what the organization needed to bring holiday magic to the children and families they service.
Stay tuned for photo uploads of all the deliveries OR find them on our social media feeds.
Have a wonderful holiday season!
4,600 toys were delivered to the hospital just in time for the holiday festivities with Santa. Fox 8 News covered the delivery, see the story here.
Every year our team steps back to build a giant castle with the haul from our local Wal-mart.
Our annual holiday takeover of our local Walmart that specifically purchases an array of items for Akron Children's Hospital.
We accept dollars and new, unused toys towards our drops.

Join us for an evening of BINGO! Believe it or not, the bulk of our funding comes through our state licensed bingo game! We play year-round every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday evening at our location in Canton, OH.
Every year, we invite staff, volunteers, board members, and community friends to "take-over" a store in our community for our largest shopping event of the year. This year, we took over wal-mart with over 30 people, spent over $15,500, and purchased 1,249 items for Akron Children's Hospital.
After unbagging and sorting through 1,249 various items that our team purchased at Wal-mart for Akron Children's Hospital, we built a castle because that's the only thing that makes sense to us. Stay tuned for PART THREE - Delivery
Delivery Day at Akron Children's Hospital. This delivery included 1,249 items from Wal-Mart, 305 stuffed animals from Keillor's A Teddy Bear Shoppe - Canal Fulton, Ohio from the Bear Drive and bulk-sourced items directly from manufacturer PlayMonster Fun, local vendor Sir Troy's Toy Kingdom, local vendor The Captivating Closet. Also included were various items collected from ten Starbucks across district 1985 Akron East. All in all, we sent 3,715 items to the hospital's doors.
The ACH child life specialists will choose items catered to each child's interests and wrap them in time for Santa to hand-deliver them for Christmas. It is our privilege to be able to do this year-round for organizations across Northeast Ohio. Thank you for your continued support which makes all of this possible!
