Akron Stuff The Bus “Recharge”

July 1, 2023 - January 8, 2024

Picture the first day of school: The smell of freshly sharpened pencils, immaculate erasers, the crisp edges of a fresh notebook. But as the school year goes on, pencils break, erasers and notebooks get used up, and children find themselves short on vital learning supplies.
