VICTIM ASSISTANCE PROGRAM AND FURNACE STREET MISSION TO PROVIDE A SPECIAL HOLIDAY FOR FAMILIES
The Victim Assistance Program and Furnace Street Mission will be providing up to 150 Holiday food and gift baskets to victims of crime and trauma in Summit County on Thursday, December 20, 2012. Each year, Victim Assistance Program advocates identify families in Summit County to be the recipients of a holiday meal and toys for the children. Easing the pain and suffering of crime victims and their families by providing food and gifts to families with children is a small gesture that can make a large impact.
This program is made possible through generous donations from individuals and corporations as well as support from the local law enforcement agencies. The baskets include a holiday meal and toys for the children as a way of letting them know that the harm caused to them is not forgotten at this special time of the year.
Want to know how you can be involved with this important project? Collection boxes for new toys for children 0-18 years of age are placed in various businesses throughout Summit County. A complete list of collection sites can be viewed at www.victimassistanceprogram.org. Toy donations can also be dropped off at the Victim Assistance office at 150 Furnace St, Akron, Ohio 44304.
Monetary donations are also welcome and can be mailed to the Victim Assistance office. Additional information about the services offered by Victim Assistance is available by calling (330) 376-0040.
