Article Updates 3-21-19 – We will not be meeting at the Cuyahoga Falls Library on Saturday. Please contact Cindy directly at cindy @akronohiomoms.com to arrange a pick up location for your donation. I’m happy to meet you at your convenience.

It has come to our attention that students at a local inner city school, STEAM Academy in Akron, Ohio are in need for school supplies, school uniforms, and personal items. We are holding a drive for this K-7 grade charter school students.

Akron Inner City School Donation Drive Needs

School Supplies:

  • crayons
  • markers
  • glue
  • lined papers (wide or college)
  • pencils

School Uniforms:

Need sizes for grades K-7th (Size 5 – Adult Large) gently used or new.

  • Khaki pants
  • Any color polo shirts

Personal Items:

  • shampoo
  • deodorant
  • feminine hygiene items (6th-7th grade girls)
  • toothpaste
  • toothbrush

Sporting Equipment:

The school could use sporting equipment for recess. Gently used or new kickballs, basketballs, jump ropes, sidewalk chalk, and other outdoor sporting equipment would be greatly enjoyed by the students as the weather warms up and they get outside.

Donate with Amazon:

You can even donate via Amazon. A teacher created an Amazon list to give you additional ideas on classroom supplies and food that would be helpful to supplement their school provided lunches – we all know how hungry our kids can be with just a small school lunch, there is a food insecurity. The Amazon list is just an idea of supplies they need, they don’t need to be the exact products or purchased from Amazon. If you purchase through Amazon, you can have those items shipped directly to the teacher.

 

Please email me at cindy @akronohiomoms.com to to make arrangements for pick up of your donations.  If you plan to host your own mini-drive and would like for me to pick up the items at your home or business location, please email as well.

There is an on-going need, so if this post is outdated by the time you read it, please contact me if you want to donate, it is never too late and no donation is too small.

Thank you for your generosity.
