On Saturday, December 1, 2018, MSWSA, Social Work Faculty Mark McManus and Naomi White along with BASW and MSW students assisted Project GRAD Akron in the 14th Annual Breakfast and Educational Fun with Santa. According to Project Grad Akron, this free event received 400 community people. Even though free photos with Santa may have been the draw, a wide variety of resources to parents, grandparents, and other caretakers were available and balanced with art, crafts, and games for the children.
