Akron Brass Volunteers

Treasure

Akron Brass

At the Akron Brass Company, we take an active role in direct philanthropic giving and engage in volunteer efforts to support community needs. The Reading Under the Lights event in Wooster was the perfect initiative for our company. We financially supported the event so every child could choose five books in an effort to improve literacy, while dispatching a team of volunteers to experience the joy of reading to our future community leaders.

A Triway student recently came to the OHuddle office with the observation that many teachers’ school supplies were becoming depleted since the start of the year. The student and his mentor partnered to organize and deliver school supplies donated through OHuddle for Triway, creating a mid-year supply delivery in “service to others” (Developmental Asset #9).
