Like Cleveland, this Northeast Ohio town sends numerous people into media in both New York and Hollywood. It's a town full of influencers before they even become influencers. A whopping 50 percent of America's population lives within a 500-mile radius of Akron, including the 10 million people who live within a 150-mile radius.
There's another side to this city, though. A working-class town, Akron started America's trucking industry, and served as the "Rubber Industry Capital of the World" for decades. It's also where Alcoholics Anonymous began, and where many non-profits continually reach out to the homeless and under-resourced locally. Akron has the state's highest percentage of unaccompanied homeless youth who fend for themselves on the streets. It’s a city that needs your help.

This event is about youth and adults uniting to serve, to bring hope and help to people in need.
