Aluminum Cans for Burned Children (ACBC) raises money to help burn survivors and their families by funding educational and support programs, and paying for non-medical items or services not covered by insurance. These include special protective clothing that helps skin heal, bicycles that help children exercise burned arms or legs, transportation to outpatient treatment for needy families, and more.
ACBC also sponsors annual social events for child and adult burn survivors, as well as training and support for firefighters and educational programs.
Getting Help from ACBC
If you or someone in your community needs assistance after suffering a fire tragedy, contact the Akron Children's Hospital Paul and Carol David Foundation Burn Institute at 330-543-8813.
Our staff will take your case to the ACBC board, which comprises volunteer representatives from area fire stations, recycling company Annaco and staff from Akron Children’s Hospital. This can usually be done very quickly.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
