Swing a hammer for charity

Alpha Phi Omega will host Smashes for the Flashes 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. today in Manchester field.

For donations of cash or canned goods, students have the opportunity to take a sledge hammer to a car painted in University of Akron colors. Provost Robert Frank will be taking one of the first swings, followed by President Lester Lefton and several other deans later on in the day.

Students can donate $1 for one hit, $2 for three hits, or $5 for a minute of unlimited hits. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the United Way.
