CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – It seems behind every organization that does great work there are volunteers.

So it is with the Stark County Division of Children’s Services, where the non-profit Project KARE is able to raise funds and provide gifts to children being taken care of by the agency.

Their “Rising Up/Moving On” program rewards high school students who attain certain goals like graduation, despite the adversity they faced.

These are things Children’s Services is unable to do as a government agency.
