Akron Snow Angels

$6,403 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 61 people in 36 months
Akron Snow Angels was established to help the less fortunate in the community, some of whom may not be seeking out traditional assistance through a shelter environment. We provide warm, dry items and most importantly interaction, respect and encouragement. While food is important, we also want to help provide the most basic needs.

This is a grass roots, volunteer led project, with the first mission taking place February 1, 2015. We serve the Akron community and to date, have distributed items and touched lives in the areas of North Hill and Downtown Akron. We hope extend the territory once we have obtained more donations, a facility and more man power. All monetary donations help to run the daily operations - paper, printing, pins, trash bags, clothing, toiletries, food, beverages, any fees associated with domain names and hosting of website or PO Box. All operations are run by volunteers - no individuals are compensated for their time.

Thank you again for your support and we hope that you will join us on our next mission.

Exciting news to share!

Akron Snow Angels just ended our first funding campaign and thanks to you, we raised $1,175! We are about to embark on a second campaign and hope to reach a new goal to purchase additional warm clothing items, food and to help cover the cost of print materials.

Additionally, we now have an official EIN Number and are well on our way to establishing ourselves as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

As of today, we will have an official bank account and a PO Box in case anyone prefers on sending checks versus online donations.

Donations can be sent to:
Akron Snow Angels
PO Box 107
Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio 44222

Thanks to all of you for your belief in this project - we so grateful for your support and are very excited to be moving forward!
