Akron Children's seeks change bandits

« Boardman Neighbors


Recruitment is underway for Miracle Maker change bandits to assist with pre-event fundraising activities for the ninth annual Miracles and Promises Radiothon to benefit Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley. The Radiothon will take place from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and will be broadcast live on Mix 98.9 and 570 WKBN from the hospital’s Beeghly campus in Boardman.

The change bandit program is a fun and easy way for individuals, families, businesses, schools, and civic and community organizations to help to raise funds prior to the Radiothon. Change bandits can create their own fundraising activities in addition to wrangling donations of spare change from coworkers, friends and family. All donations and change bandits are recognized during the Radiothon.

The Radiothon is the hospital’s largest fundraising event of the year. One hundred percent of the funds raised during are used in the Mahoning Valley to benefit local children and families.

To register to become a change bandit, visit www.miraclesandpromises.org or contact JoAnn Stock at 330.746.9122 or jstock@chmca.org.
