While most sixth, seventh, and eighth graders spent their early mid-spring Saturday morning in bed, LeBron’s kids were serving their community. With friends, siblings, and parents in tow, our I PROMISE Secondary students came out in full force. Flexing their service power, the group tackled grounds maintenance for Akron’s historic Towpath and Richard Howe House.

Stopping only for a shake or a breakfast sandwich from the Swensons food truck, our kids and their families bagged pounds of garbage and laid wheel barrels full of mulch. Their hard work seemingly rejuvenated an already cozy cove in Downtown Akron.

For their work, our sixth, seventh, and eighth graders earned PROMISE Cash, which they are able to turn in to the Foundation for prizes and rewards.

We send a special family thank you to everyone who came out to serve our community.
