We are truly amazed by the support we have received since launching Adopt a Classroom! We are so excited to say that ALL of our 61 classrooms have been adopted! BUT we still need your help to continue to be intentional with our partnered schools this Holiday season!

We are currently adopting every student AND teacher at our partnered schools and still need YOU!

        Inspire Hope during Christmas

Adopt a Classroom is our Holiday outreach that brings together the Akron community to inspire hope in our partnered schools. At our Adopt a Classroom locations, every student in the school receives a new and wrapped present that our volunteers personally deliver. 

Adopt A Classroom uses toys as a tool to spread love, joy, and hope during the holiday season. Take action today by adopting a classroom, volunteering to wrap gifts, or spending a few days out of the year with us hand-delivering toys to over 1,000 students. 


Donate Financially

Student Sweatshirts: A need was expressed by one of our partnered schools that their students are in need of sweatshirts for this winter. Therefore, with us listening and responding, we have decided to commit to raising funds to help provide sweatshirts! For $250 you will help us provide TWENTY sweatshirts (approximately 1 classroom) with sweatshirts for this cold winter!

Teacher Sponsor: Our schools are made up of AMAZING teachers who work day in and day out to ensure their students are learning and feel loved. Help us also provide them with a gift to love on them! Your $50 donation will provide FIVE teachers with gift cards this holiday, or if you would rather buy them yourself please email kwilson@akronhope.org for a list!

We also accept Venmo! Venmo @The Well CDC with the subject “Akron Hope”
