Akron teammates donate school supplies to local elementary students

In August, Akron teammates donated, packed and delivered classroom supplies to support nearly 300 students at nearby McEbright CLC for 12 classrooms, kindergarten through fifth grade.  Teammates worked with the school to ensure that the specific needs for each classroom were met.

When the Bridgestone truck arrived at the school and the supplies was unloaded, the principal, staff and teachers lined the hallways and clapped and cheered as the boxes were delivered to the appropriate classrooms. 

“They made us feel welcomed and appreciated,” said Mary Ann Roach, Community Liaison for Akron. “Thanks to all Akron teammates who were generous enough to donate the crayons, notebooks, pencils, etc. that will help the students be successful in this school year.”
