This past weekend, June 6th and 7th, the Akron Rotary Club officially planted boots on the ground to help serve a very specific need for barbershop and salon owners in the greater Akron black community.
A team of seven Rotarians gathered at the Akron rotary camp on Saturday to put together supply care packages for 70 local businesses. The supplies ranged from Covid prevention supplies to cleaning supplies as well as some beauty products.

The following day 5 Rotarians and a few family members met in the afternoon outside of Dr. Leia Love's salon in West Akron to distribute the packages. There were lots of smiles and thankful hearts for our gracious gifts.

A big thanks to the club members and our Akron Rotary Foundation for its matching donation - we raised $6,300 for this project!
Well-done Akron Rotary Club for stepping up to meet a very present need by planting seeds of love.

The journey begins!
