Morning Help - The Salvation Army

Save to Favorites

The Salvation Army of Summit County

The Salvation Army is looking for help on Tuesday and Thursday mornings to ride along and assist our driver to the Akron-Canton Regional food bank.

The food we receive helps feed the homeless and children in our community through our food bank and our hot meals programs. Without volunteers on the frontlines delivering food we couldn't provide food to our community each day.

The volunteer would assist in shopping in the Food Bank as well as help with the loading and unloading of the truck to our Kitchen on Maple Street and our Pantry on Bellows Avenue.

Volunteers are not required to drive the box truck (but if they wanted to it would be an added benefit).

Must be able to lift at least 20-30 lbs. Most lifting is done with a pallet jack but some are not.

Times are around 8am-10am depending on how long it takes to pick up and deliver the order.

Please inquire through Volunteer Match and we will get back with you quickly.

Thank you!
