Hospital’s holiday benefit goes remote
The seeing eye
FESTIVAL OF TREES ONLINE: Akron Children’s Hospital’s 39th annual Festival of Trees is taking place online this year. The event showcases the community’s holiday spirit and offers an opportunity for the public to buy trees, wreaths and holiday items online. In 1982, the volunteers created the festival and have raised more than $6.3 million to benefit medical research, education and patient care programs at the hospitals. Items for decorating can be picked up today at the John S. Knight Center, which will be a contact free pickup. Call 330-543-8424 or go to akronchildrens.org/tree festival.
HELPING HANDS: Helping Hands Closet at Western Reserve United Methodist Church, 4580 Canfield Road, is open 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Tuesday. Masks are required. For information, call 330-318-7952.
