Siffrin's 2019 Food Drive
helped to fill the shelves at the Zion Lutheran Food Pantry. The pantry has been so generous to our individuals at Thanksgiving for many years. This year Siffrin's Director of Community Integration (Stark), Matt White, and volunteers from The Bridge delivered more than 350 pounds of non-perishable items. Special thanks go out to everyone who donated, delivered and coordinated. #SiffrinProud

Siffrin Academy saw its first location open in 2017. Based at Siffrin’s Mahoning Regional office in Austintown, Ohio, the program offers postsecondary education and pre-vocational training. This program is geared to those transitioning into life after high school and those on a path to employment.
Siffrin Academy in Stark County will be underway soon at Kent State University Stark Campus. The university setting will allow those enrolled in the Academy to interact with students on campus and allows those KSU students to work with those in the Academy as part of a mentoring program. The relationship between KSU Stark and Siffrin will give participants a unique opportunity to make their own choices with their education in an integrated learning environment.
