Barbizon of Akron Collects 1000's of Toys for Akron Children in Need

THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!!As a result of the generosity of everyone affiliated with Pro-Model and Talent and Barbizon of Akron, we were able to collect OVER 1000 toys for hundreds of children in our local community! We want to thank you all for your support and your contributions, as we definitely wouldn’t have been able to achieve this goal without your help! As a result of everyone’s goodness we provided 200 toys to the Akron Urban League, for their Breakfast with Santa event (allowing for 100 additional children to attend), over 400 toys went to the local “Toys for Tots”, and the rest to area shelters! We enjoy giving back to the community that has been so good to us for over 20 years and we are incredibly proud that we have collected/purchased record numbers this year for those in need. Thank you again to our extended Barbizon of Akron/Pro-Model and Talent family who all helped to make the holidays full of joy for many little ones in Akron, Ohio!
