  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Does your company have a few hours to help feed the Summit Country community?

We're looking for businesses to work with that could send 10-15 employees to volunteer at our monthly "Red Shield" program. It's simple. Just come on out and we'll show you what to do! It's also a great photo op for your company. :)

Red Shield is the Salvation Army's community drive through food pantry serving hundreds of people in a very short time.

Volunteers help with the following:

- prepare/organize the food (bagging canned goods, organizing bread, packing boxes ...)
- load up carts. They get the carts ready to be taken out to the cars.
- pack the cars with food
- break down boxes and clean up at the end of the day

We're looking for organizations and businesses who will co-sponsor just one month a year. While we do have our core volunteers with the Salvation Army having an additional 10-15 more willing volunteers a month will help us keep the lines of cars moving even smoother.

The Red Shield program runs the 2nd Wednesday of every month between 8:30 and noon.

If your organization would like to partner with the Salvation Army or individually you'd like to join us please contact John Kasler at the Salvation Army through this site or text/call at 330.958.2906 for more information.
