Akron: Making Pillows for the Homeless

This month’s promise was held at Access, a homeless shelter for women and children in the Akron area. Each year, 500 women and kids come through Access’s doors seeking shelter, counseling and other resources to help them escape an impoverished or dangerous situation. This means the shelter needs 500 pillows, blankets, sheets etc. for these families to sleep with, as well as take with them to their new homes once their time at Access is complete.

We has 29 volunteers come together and make 68 pillows this past weekend. This puts a good dent in the over all number of donations Access needs annually. Thank you again to everyone who donated their time and skill to help this great cause.
