Salvation Army needs volunteers this Saturday!

The Salvation Army has a volunteer emergency and we’re seeking help for our Big Christmas Distribution here at The Citadel, 190 S. Maple Street, Akron, 44302.
Volunteers are needed this Saturday, December 15 in three shifts:  From 8 to noon, from noon to 4 and from 4 to 7pm.
We need folks to help in three areas:  1) directing traffic for the appointments, 2) escorting families with carts of large bundles of toys from the gym to help load in their cars and 3) helping load boxes of food in cars from the garage.
All positions are outdoors, so folks must dress warmly.  The job is not recommended for anyone younger than high school age as some lifting is required.  Ask your lodge, church, neighbors, friends and family, please.  If anyone at all can come and help for a shift or two, please call me at 330-958-3751.  Merry Christmas from The Salvation Army, and on behalf of the families we serve, THANK YOU.

Need community service hours (after final exams)?

A note from the Akron Bar Association: We are reaching out today in hopes that you may be able to offer some time to assist the Akron Bar Gala Committee. With the Gala coming up February 2nd, we need volunteers to help solicit and collect donations for the auction portion of the event. Any time that you can spare is much appreciated. This will be a great opportunity for you to spend more time with Bar members and meet new people, while assisting with the Bar’s main fundraiser to support scholarship dollars for students!

If you are interested in learning more about volunteering (after final exams, of course), please email Attorney Bill Price: wprice@elkandelk.com

Thank you!
