The community was invited to a kickoff rally in Downtown Akron to support the 2.25 mill renewal levy for Summit County Children Services.
The campaign officially kicked off Monday with various community leaders emphasizing that when people go to vote they are investing in Akron's children and families.
While the levy is not a tax increase it will provide for more than 60 percent of the agency's operating budget, and cost the owner of a $100,000 home in Summit County $5.75 per month in taxes.
Clients of Summit County Children Services shared some of their successes stories with the crowd down at Lock 3 to illustrate why passing the November levy is vitally important to the the future of Akron's children.
They said by having the agency and it's many services in place, children can grow up be productive adults and contribute to the city's growth and development.
Voters will have the final say November 6.
