Representatives from Giant Eagle presented Akron Children’s Hospital with a check for $78,395 during the Akron Aeros hematology/oncology awareness game on Aug. 23 at Canal Park.
The money was raised earlier this summer at 26 Giant Eagle stores in Portage, Summit and Stark counties and benefits the Showers Family Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at Akron Children’s Hospital.
“We are incredibly grateful to Giant Eagle and their customers for supporting the patients and families of northeast Ohio fighting childhood cancer and blood disorders at Akron Children’s,” said Jeffrey Hord, MD, director of the Showers Family Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders.
Since 2010, Giant Eagle shoppers have donated more than $168,000 to the Showers Family at Akron Children’s Hospital, which treats more than 40 patients each day for cancer and blood disorders.
Giant Eagle raises more than $78,000 for Akron Children's Hospital.
