2024 Charity

Renner Kenner proudly supports The Safety Forces Support Center in Akron, Ohio.  Law enforcement, fire/EMS personnel, and dispatchers experience intense and unique job stressors which impact their physical, mental, and emotional health, resulting in a high level of divorce, alcoholism, domestic disturbances, and, especially, suicide.  The Safety Forces Support Center provides specialized support focusing on the unique job stressors our first responders experience.  The highly specialized roster of services and interventions are provided, at no out-of-pocket cost, to active and retired first responders, their spouses/partners, and to safety forces departments primarily in Summit County; but whenever possible in Portage, Stark, Wayne, Medina, and Cuyahoga counties also.
