The Salvation Army of Summit County

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 1 person is interested

The Salvation Army of Summit County is looking for an individuals or a group to come to our 190 S. Maple Street location for a few hours of yard work.

We have flowerbeds, islands in the parking lot and other hills around the back on the property that could use some extra attention. There are also leaves to pick up around this time of year.

The volunteer will work with our Maintenance team to coordinate ideas for the property. All the tools are here, we are just looking for people that can help keep the Salvation Army looking good.

Typically, the hours we are available for this work are Monday-Friday from 9-4pm. If you have a larger group weekends can be planned to meet your groups needs.

If interested, please contact John Kasler, Volunteer Coordinator though this site or email me directly at john.kasler@use.salvationarmy.org.
