The Battered Women’s Shelter of Summit and Medina Counties provides emergency services and supportive services to victims seeking to end family violence.

VanDevere Jeans Days….Changing Lives!
This month VanDevere employees are donating to Akron Pregnancy Services as part of their monthly Jeans Day Charity Drives! All donations will be matched by the company and donated to the group.
Akron Pregnancy Services is a safe place where women can go to get help when they are facing an unplanned pregnancy; a place where they can process their options and leave with a clear perspective. On a daily basis they see women, and men, feeling emotionally overwhelmed and fearful about an unplanned pregnancy. APS is a safe, nonjudgemental place where all of their options can be explored. Many of our staff and volunteers have been through a similar experience as our clients and understand the pressures an unplanned pregnancy may bring. You can find out more at akronpregnancyservices.com.
Any customer wishing to donate to this cause and have their donation matched, are welcome to drop off the donation at any VanDevere location!
