We frequently have a need for front desk receptionists, clerical help, and assistance with building and grounds maintenance. If you are a top-notch planner or organizer, serve on a committee for one of our specific events or programs.
We can use your help sorting, organizing, and distributing items in our pantry. You can also help by cooking, serving, or cleaning up for our Hot Lunch Program.
If you are a doctor, dentist, nurse, pharmacist, medical/dental assistant, or clerical/front desk helper, lend a hand at our clinic.
If you would like to inspire others through mentoring as a Job Coach, come work with newly employed clients or help teach class through our Community Works Akron.
Every year OPEN M's Christmas for the Love of Children program sponsors around 220 families to provide Christmas gifts, school supplies, pajamas, food and more. We end up with over 600 kids each year and it is a massive undertaking. Each year there are countless ways to help and volunteer your time or gifts.
We frequently host larger group service projects for various churches, schools and civic groups. Please contact us directly to further discuss details for your group!
You can make an impact on your community from the comfort of your own home and on your own time. Opportunities include: creating encouragement notes for our pantry clients, hosting a medical supply or canned food drive, sewing blankets, making school supply kits, making homemade masks, and more!
