Victim Assistance Program


AKRON — Victim Assistance Program (VAP) has been chosen as a top five finalist in the Toshiba Helping the Helpers Technology Makeover. According to VAP officials, nonprofits nationwide were able to submit a two-minute video telling Toshiba about their missions and how they would benefit from new technology. Winning charities will receive new leading edge equipment and Toshiba guidance so they can operate to their fullest potential, according to VAP officials. Four prize packages valued at $31,000 and one grand prize valued at $100,000 will be awarded. The grand prize will be chosen through Facebook voting. Voters can vote once a day through March 10. VAP is asking the public to vote for its video. To vote, sign on to your Facebook account from a computer; search “Helping the Helpers” (add the app); click “View Entries” at the top of the page; click “Vote Now” under the VAP video; and repeat every day until March 10. VAP is a nonprofit organization that provides free holistic services to victims of crime and trauma throughout Summit County. For details, visit www.victimassistanceprogram.org.
