Hot Meal Community Outreach (90 min per day) - Salvation Army Akron

Save to Favorites

The Salvation Army of Summit County

  • 6 people are interested

It only takes 90 minutes a day to make a difference! That's how long it takes to go to one of our Community Centers in Akron to serve hot meals to our community.

We serve meals through the Salvation Army at our Maple Street location, Patterson Park Community Center and the Summit Lake Community Center.

Now that the weather is getting nice again come join us at one of the most vital outreaches at the Salvation Army.

All centers are served indoors and Covid-19 rules are enforced.

The times we serve our hot meals are as follows:
Maple Street - serves 11-12 (arrive 10:45)
Patterson Park - serves 11-12 (arrive 10:45, 10:30 if you want to ride to the location)
Summit Lake - serves 11:30-12 (arrive 11:15, 10:30 if you want to ride to the site)

As notes above, transportation is provided from Maple Street to and from our Community Centers.

If you are interested in helping please contact us through Volunteer Match and indicate if you would like a phone call or email so we can get in touch with you. We can then schedule a 90 min time to come in to talk, fill out paperwork and watch a training video.

Thank you and God bless!
