A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
8 people are interested
Every Friday, the Salvation Army of Barberton will host a Marketplace Food Pantry of donated food to share with the families, men, women, and children facing food insecurity in your Barberton community. Volunteers will unpack the food onto one or two 8' tables and the recipients will select from the options. Volunteers will also record the recipients' zip code.
The time commitment would be approximately 10:30 am - 12:30 or 1:00 p.m. I would love to recruit some teams from Active Adult Center members to adopt a Friday, alternative Fridays, etc.
