Giving Back: United Way

Summit DD staff recently volunteered at United Way’s annual Stuff the Bus event—an essential community program designed to collect and sort school supplies for students from all 28 Akron Public Elementary Schools. Together, the volunteers sorted and packed school supplies for every single elementary school student in Akron—that’s 10,500 back packs!

“If your dreams aren’t scary, they aren’t big enough,” shared Symphonie with a glowing smile. Within a matter of minutes, you quickly discover her infectious personality, plus her desire to positively impact others. “Even though I have a physical challenge, I can help people. Helping people is my thing,” she continued.
