The Portage County Crewneck Sweatshirt



The design

We double checked and, yep, that’s really where Ravenna is. If it seems skewed to the west, you’re not alone in thinking that. Our guess is that the Ravenna Arsenal plays tricks on the mind: We write off that massive section of the county because, for all intents and purposes, it’s not there. 

And if anyone asks which Western U.S. state is on your sweatshirt, just tell them, “Nope. That’s home.”

The sweatshirt

A good old-fashioned sweatshirt. A Portager staff favorite. Light enough to wear on its own, heavy enough to slip over a shirt and sit out by the fire. Cotton feel sweatshirt with a cozy, fleecy inside.


The medium-heavy fabric is a 50/50 polyester cotton blend with a loose fit. And it runs true to size.

The shop

Buying from the Portager Shop is a good idea for two reasons. First, 90% of the profits we make from sales support our journalists. It allows us to tell more stories, report on local government and expand our coverage. We’re not owned by some out-of-state hedge fund, so the money you spend here comes right back to you in the form of important local news.

What about the other 10% of the profits? Between now and the end of March 2022, a tenth of all sales after expenses will go directly to the Socially Responsible Sweatshop of Kent, an organization of sewists dedicated to repurposing landfill-bound textiles into new, useful items. These were the people who stitched together thousands of masks for first responders during the pandemic. They donate all the proceeds from their sales to organizations fighting hunger in Portage County, including Kent Social Services and the Rural Relief Mobile Food Pantry.
