Following our trend to help local charities in our community, we started collecting clothes for donation at our Akron and Youngstown branches. We had an overwhelming response from the start! A whole pallet was filled with bags of clothes in the first week. This continued for the rest of the month, until it was time to load up the cars and get the donated clothes to those in need.
We spread out all of the donations to deserving charities in Akron and Youngstown who truly help those in most need. From our Youngstown branch we donated eight full boxes of clothes to Rescue Mission of Mahoning Valley; which not only specializes in the care for the homeless, but veterans and children in unstable homes. From our Akron branch,13 full bags of clothing to Amvets of Ohio. This charity focuses on helping veterans to get on their feet again and have the stable life they deserve.
The last drop off was for Haven of Rest and Summit County Battered Women’s Shelter. Over 22 bags of clothes were donated to these two charities for a combined weight of 287 lbs. Haven of Rest focuses on helping the homeless in the Akron area by providing them with resources to help them live a normal life. The Summit County Battered Women’s Shelter helps women and children in Summit County that are in need of assistance.
Fallsway is proud to help these great charities and we hope you are inspired to do the same!
