Akron Brass Volunteers

Treasure

Akron Brass

At the Akron Brass Company, we take an active role in direct philanthropic giving and engage in volunteer efforts to support community needs. The Reading Under the Lights event in Wooster was the perfect initiative for our company. We financially supported the event so every child could choose five books in an effort to improve literacy, while dispatching a team of volunteers to experience the joy of reading to our future community leaders.

The Counseling Center

A thirty year old man diagnosed with schizophrenia was experiencing symptoms of paranoia that made it difficult to maintain a job. He would quickly believe that his boss and co-workers were planted by the government to spy on him, and it was challenging for him to hide these symptoms. Additionally, he had experienced a shoulder injury on a previous job site that limited his ability to lift. Through his connection to Employment Services, he was able to be matched with a very accommodating company with a supervisor who accepted and supported him through his symptoms. He has been successfully employed for over five months, which is the longest he has ever held a job.

A Triway student recently came to the OHuddle office with the observation that many teachers’ school supplies were becoming depleted since the start of the year. The student and his mentor partnered to organize and deliver school supplies donated through OHuddle for Triway, creating a mid-year supply delivery in “service to others” (Developmental Asset #9).
