Court Is Grateful For Generosity Of Summit County

Court Is Grateful For Generosity Of Summit County

Jun 16, 2017

  Summit County residents used their spring cleaning to improve the lives of our seniors. With the help of volunteers, Summit County Probate Court collected and sorted about 12 thousand pieces of clothing. The much needed clothing went first to indigent wards of the court in long term care facilities. However, the outpouring of generosity allowed the Court to provide as well to 25 more area agencies, including AMHA senior buildings, the Urban League, Snow Angels, Open M, Community Support Services and many more. Some of the Court’s volunteer Senior Visitors and Guardians were able to “shop” with their ward’s specific needs in mind. Excellent resources for those wanting to continue to give and for those in need can be found through Summit County Info Line by dialing 211 or calling 330-376-6660 or going to www.211summit.org for information on local community clothing donations and much more. Below is a list of area agencies and nursing homes that benefited from the drive.

Akron Attorneys Help Children of Immigrants

Millions of children, who are American born citizens, live with an undocumented parent. Summit County Probate Court encourages parents to put paperwork in place that provides instructions for the oversight of their children. This would help avoid situations that could place children in the custody of Summit County Children’s Services. “They belong to us, they are our citizens, so how can we make that process, should it happen as painless on the children as possible?” said Summit County Probate Judge Elinore Marsh Stormer. “That’s our goal.”   Read more...
