Celebrating 10 Years of Building Relationships
A wonderful celebration to thank community partners, sponsors, volunteers, and supporters was held at The Trailhead in Akron. About 120 people enjoyed appetizers and drinks and learned about current and future plans for First Serve. Hosted by Derry Wimer, speakers included Peter Wiley (Senior Pastor), Sue Wimer and Kris Stoehr (Co-Directors of First Serve), Kim Sabetta (Principal of North High School), Nick Browning (President – Akron Region at Huntington National Bank) and Alisa and Brad Wright (First Serve Ambassadors). The event also served as a fundraiser as First Serve is striving to raise a total of $100,000 to support the efforts of 1,000 volunteers before the end of the year. An outpouring of over $50,000 was contributed by the generous attendees, so we are more than halfway to the goal. Please consider supporting First Serve by using the link below.
