Embracing the Spirit of Giving
As the holiday season wraps Akron in its festive glow, a unique event is set to kindle the spirit of community and sharing.

This event is more than just a fundraiser; it’s a celebration of giving, community, and the joy of meeting local heroes.
Meet the Firefighters: A Family Affair
