An Amazing Opportunity to Double your Gift to CVCA Tuition Assistance
During the month of November we celebrate GivingTuesday as a community. During this time, 100% of your gift goes towards tuition assistance! Now, your gift will make an even bigger impact! CVCA has been blessed again this year by a group of friends who have stepped up to provide a $1-for-$1 match for the first $100,000 given on or before November 29! Please join us in meeting this goal. GIVE HERE
Urban Vision Christmas Store Outreach
CVCA has a long and wonderful tradition of supporting the Urban Vision Christmas Store! Each Christmas season, our donations of needed items significantly impact this outreach. Urban Vision (whose founder is a CVCA alum) helps families in the North Akron community by providing schoolwork assistance for children, mentoring teens, and, most importantly, sharing the love of Christ. Kids earn “UV Bucks” throughout the year by participating in Urban Vision programs. The Christmas store is stocked with donated items that the kids can “purchase” with their UV Bucks.
Each CVCA grade has been assigned a category of items to choose from. Each student is asked to donate one item and bring it (unwrapped) to school during the week of December 5.
- 6th Grade: action figure dolls, multi-cultural dolls, Playdough craft sets, crafts of any kind
- 7th Grade: board games, children’s books, art sets, marker sets, paint sets, sketch pads
- 8th Grade: hats, gloves, mittens, socks, lunch boxes – for any age from toddler to teen
- 9th Grade: large bottles of shampoo, cream rinse, body wash, Lysol wipes, toilet paper, paper towels
- 10th Grade: $10 gift card to local fast food, beverage stores, convenience stores, etc.
- 11th Grade: basketballs, soccer balls, footballs, sport toys, plastic sleds
- 12th Grade: Sam’s Club/Costco-size non-perishable food items such as granola bars, popcorn, candy, snacks
Please bring your unwrapped donations between Monday, December 5 and Thursday, December 8. Large collection boxes labeled for each grade will be available in the CVCA Welcome Center area. We will deliver these amazing gifts to Urban Vision on Friday, December 9.
