Kleps Family Emergency Fund

On Tuesday July 11th, one of our colleagues and friend, Kim Kleps and her family experienced a devastating house fire in Akron.

We are beyond happy to report that Kim, her husband, two children and the family dog are safe and unharmed. However, they have lost everything.

Since we are Ohio Strong, it is in this spirit that we have formed this GoFundMe account to help out one of our own.  Any money donated will go to Kim's family to help with finances and expenses.

If you would like to make a donation, Please click the DONATE NOW button to help Kim and her family get back on their feet and get some normalcy in their lives.

Thank you so much for your consideration to donate.
