Hunger Outreach - Akron Community at the Salvation Army

Save to Favorites

The Salvation Army of Summit County

  • 3 people are interested

As we continue to expand our hunger programs at the Salvation Army we continue to see the need for more willing volunteers to serve at our community centers in Akron.

Currently we serve meals at the Salvation Army on Maple Street, Patterson Park Community Center and Summit Lake Community Center with the outlook of adding more centers soon.

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

The times we serve the centers do vary from between 11 and 11:30am and are open for an hour.

There is transportation to each location from Maple Street which leaves at 10:30am.

If you are looking for a way to reach out to serve your community come talk to us at the Salvation Army. We're able to find a place for you to volunteer and help others.

Thank you and God bless!
