Become A Volunteer!

Volunteers are an important part of all programs at the Mission. Volunteers allow us to serve people free of charge. If you are interested in making an impact in the life of a family, please call the Mission at 330-454-8610  or give us a way to contact you by clicking on the VOLUNTEER button and telling us how you or your organization would like to help.


Activity Aides are needed for the Calvary Arts Project (CAPS), which meets on Monday and Wednesday from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. Volunteers are especially needed at this time.  Please call Darryl at the Mission to volunteer.


Bonus Distribution Monday

This occurs the first Monday of the month, except when it falls on a holiday such as Labor Day, 4th of July, etc.  If that should happen, the bonus distribution will take place on the following Monday.  Hours are from 2:00 to 4:00pm and it is open to all Stark County residents.  Food is provided by the Akron/Canton Regional Food Bank.  This is considered a bonus day and does not count as a Food Pantry visit.

The shopping room will be closed on Bonus Distribution Day.


Free Haircuts

We are currently not offering haircuts until we find a new stylist.  Please check this post again for updates.

Diapers and formula can be picked every Thursday between the hours of 10:00am and 3:00pm for families in need.

The shopping room is open Monday through Thursday from 10:00am to 2:00pm.  The shopping room will be closed on the day of the Bonus Distribution.  No ID is needed.
