Help feed Summit County - Immediate Need - The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army of Summit County
The Summit County Hunger Response Team is a group of Volunteers that work together to feed the people and families of Summit County.
Over the past few months these have been trying times for the good people of our community. The Salvation Army has stood on the front lines where we have seen an increasing number of people coming to us for help.
We provide two primary services. The first is our Community Table where we serve hot meals at Maple Street, Patterson Park and Summit Lake Community Center. The second is through our Romig Road Warehouse where we prepare carts of food that are picked up and delivered by Door Dash.
Our Community Table is served Monday-Friday while the Warehouse operates Monday-Thursday. We are looking for volunteers who can be available to go to these sites to be there to hand out the meals or prepare the carts. We can work with your schedule to make the days work for you.
As always, your health and safety is our top priority. All social distancing guidelines and safety protocols are enforced.
Come join our team of volunteers at The Salvation Army and help us fight hunger in our community one meal at a time.
Please feel free to email John Kasler, the Summit County Volunteer Coordinator,through this site or directly at email@example.com for more information.
