Councilmen helped make Christmas merrier for North Hill families

January 12, 2009

     Ward 1 – Akron City Councilmen James P. Hurley III (W-1) and Kenneth Jones (W-5) helped 150 Akron families have a happier Christmas when they helped hand out 1,000 toys, groceries and other door prizes at the annual North Akron Christmas Celebration over the holidays.

     The event was held at Trinity United Church of Christ on North Main Street. While annual, this was the first collaboration of several North Hill organizations including Trinity United, North Hill Community House, He Brought Us out Ministry, Trinity Church of God, Hudson Community Chapel and The U.S. Marines Toys for Tots program.
