*How do you give back?#give10

Name: Emily Swick
Hometown: Norwalk, OH
How they give back: 
Emily is currently the PTO President of Norwalk Elementary. She has been volunteering in her kids' classrooms for five years now and a part of the PTO for the same. She has helped out by baking cakes and cookies, buying supplies for kids, and other items that she does all on her own to ensure that no kid is left out. Emily continues to do whatever she can at 110% not only for her kids, but because it is so important to help out the next generation. Emily says that even though she has worked countless thankless hours planning, calling, and attending meetings, have been worth it. At the end of the day she feels that if she can help out one child's life she has met her purpose. 

Name: Tammy Gilbert
Hometown: Oberlin, OH
How they give back: 
Tammy volunteers her time at Oberlin high school during their football games. She helps run one of the two snack stands that are at each Oberlin football game. The snack stands are divided up with one using their profits for football and cheerleading and the other uses their profits towards the marching band. Tammy runs the one that helps the marching band out and has been doing it for two years now. Tammy originally started this because her son is in the marching band and soon after gained a liking for volunteering.

Name: Amber Scudiere
Hometown: Cleveland, OH
How they give back: 
Amber is new to volunteering but has so far already been making a difference everyday. Amber helps out in her son's class and helps the teachers with whatever the school needs. Amber's main goal is to have the students in her son's class to remember her 20 years later as the mom who was always around. Amber wants to be an active member of her community, as her parents were with her community growing up.

Name: Beth DeLuca
Hometown: Cleveland, OH
How they give back: 
Beth is the Director of the Imagine Ball, a yearly fundraising gala that her charity, Women in Touch with Akron's Needs (WITAN) holds. Beth also sets up group volunteering opportunities within the Akron area. Some of the places where they volunteer are the Akron-Canton Food Bank, Haven of Rest, Blessings in a Backpack and countless others. Beth continues to volunteer and #give10 whenever she can.

Name: Ann Schaun
Hometown: Oberlin, OH
How they give back: 
Ann is the president of the school board at Oberlin and in her spare time she volunteers at the snack stand during the school sporting events. Ann got involved with volunteering at games because her son plays baseball at Oberlin and she wanted to give back to the community and has been volunteering for six years. Ann continues to do this because she feels that with Oberlin being such a small community, everyone needs to get involved with whatever they can do.
