A couple of recent weekends saw an astounding show of generosity by the customers of Acme Store 10 on State Road and Acme Store 12 on Bailey Road and by the members of St. Eugene Church on Munroe Falls Avenue. Their generosity helped make a success of the Measure-Up Campaign conducted on April 27, 28, and 29 and May 4 and 5. The campaign was staffed by volunteers from Cuyahoga Falls Council 2362 of the Knights of Columbus along with several nonmember volunteers.
Eighty percent of the approximately $2,900 collected at the stores and church (along with $420 donated by members of the council) will be divided equally between Hope Homes Inc. and Area 10 (Weaver) of the Special Olympics of Ohio; the other 20 percent will be distributed by the state office of the Knights of Columbus in Columbus to support statewide programs for citizens with developmental disabilities.
As co-chairmen of the Knights of Columbus Council 2362, and on behalf of the beneficiaries of the money collected, a heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to the Measure-Up Campaign.
