Stark Education Partnership Resources
 
In response to COVID-19, so many are coming together to stand on the front lines in support of our students and families. The Stark Education Partnership continues to gather information on these valuable resources, and we want to share them with you as quickly as possible. We are inspired by every one of these efforts and encourage you to share this information widely.
Food Pantries / Hot Meals
United Way and the 2-1-1 team put together a large list of local food banks and hot meal providers. We have broken the list down into Central, Eastern and Western Stark County to make it easier to find assistance in specific areas.

PPE Needed by Stark Hospitals
The Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce has received requests from both Mercy Medical Center and Aultman Hospital asking for the donation or sale of personal protection equipment (PPE) from our business community. Items needed include N95 masks, surgical masks, exam gloves, disposable gowns, disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer. If you can help in any way, contact Brian Conklin at Mercy Medical Center or Orlando Goncalves at Aultman.

Stark Mask Project
A volunteer group is sewing masks for workers in essential positions that lack access to a protective mask. To contact the group, an online form has been created with the promise to "do our best to fulfill your request."

If you have masks you would like to donate, they may be dropped off at either of these locations:
  • Poggio Amorelli Bed & Breakfast (832 S. Main St, N Canton) in the grey bin near the north door (next to driveway)
  • Stark County Emergency Management Agency. Pleasecall 330-451-3900, Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm for drop off arrangements.
