ACAR Members Volunteer at Akron Canton Food Bank
ACAR members continue to give back to the communities where they work and live.
Community Outreach & Charity Committee, along with several other ACAR members, volunteered at the Akron Canton Food Bank this month. During the two hour shift, ACAR volunteers sorted food and non-food items. Volunteers checked for expiration dates, made sure labels were on products, and sorted donated items into different categories (canned food, paper products and beverages). Also, some of ACAR’s volunteers worked in a different section measuring out quick oats that were then sealed into packages for later distribution. With the hard work and effort, ACAR’s volunteers provided 3,120 meals to those in need.
All volunteers walked away with a great sense of pride to be able to help those in our communities that need assistance.
ACAR will volunteer at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and the Akron Canton Food Bank in the Fall. Also in the Fall, ACAR will have a drive to collect non-perishables for both food banks. For more information how you can be a part of this effort, please contact Jane Shubert.
