BJ's donated $4,000 worth of school supplies to Akron Public Schools on Tuesday, September 10th. The supplies are directed towards Project RISE which is designed to assist students who are homeless. The supplies were delivered to Trinity United Church of Christ who has partnered with Project RISE to help store and distribute them.
Thanks to the generosity of partners like BJs and Trinity United, APS is able to provide for student needs, both educational and physical.
