After several communications between representatives from Case Farms* and the Bhutanese Community Association of Akron, two meetings were held to discuss ways in which Case Farms might help the Bhutanese refugee community in the greater Akron-Canton area. As a result of those discussions, Case Farms has begun providing support for expenses associated with operating the BCAA office, an annual cultural event, and an annual soccer tournament. This support is enabling the BCAA to provide more and better services to its constituency.
