New Life members are grabbing family and friends to help out for Operation Orange, the sixth annual 24-hour volunteer event at the Akron-Canton Foodbank. New Life’s shift is Friday, September 7, 2018 from 9-11 P.M. If you want to join in this worthy effort for hunger relief, contact the church at 330-699-3554.
New Life has participated in this event for several years. It’s a meaningful service project that is great for both adults and children.
