In 2018, over 120 Summit DD staff volunteered throughout Summit County for nearly 1,000 combined hours! They gave back to many local organizations including, Habitat for Humanity, Toys for Tots, United Way, One of A Kind Pet Rescue, Barberton YMCA, Good Samaritan Hunger Center, Boy Scouts of America, Akron-Canton Food Bank, Special Olympics of Ohio, and more.
“Our staff is driven to be active members in their community. I’m proud of their willingness to give back,” shared Summit DD Superintendent, John Trunk. This initiative is part of Summit DD’s strategic direction to build inclusive communities. Plus, by creating opportunities for staff to collaborate with one another, we hope to empower an engaged workface that achieves the best outcomes for the people we support—a goal in our 2019 Action Plan.
