SCCS is able to accept donations of NEW ITEMS only: toys, diapers (sizes NB-6), baby wipes, cleaning supplies, children clothing, duffle bags, and personal care items (full size bottles). SCCS is NOT ABLE to accept donations of gently used items of any kind.

NOTATION ABOUT DONATIONS OF LUGGAGE: SCCS is NOT ABLE to accept donations of new or gently used luggage or suitcases (due to a lack of storage). SCCS does accept donations of duffle bags.
DONATION DELIVERY: Donations may be dropped off Monday through Sunday, 9 a.m.-8 p.m. at the front desk of the administration building. The agency is located at 264 S. Arlington Street, Akron 44306. To make other delivery or pick-up arrangements, please email Sandy DeLuca or call (330) 379-1994.
In order to volunteer with SCCS, you will need to complete a three-step process:
- Complete a Volunteer Information Form.
- Come in for a face-to-face interview. During the interview, you will be provided with more information about the agency and upcoming volunteer opportunities.
- Be fingerprinted for a background check (at no cost to you). This will be done when you come in for the interview.
Once these steps are complete and the background check has been reviewed/approved, you will be added to our volunteer database, and as opportunities come up, you will be notified of all the details. If you are interested and available, you can sign-up accordingly.
If you have any questions, email Sandy DeLuca, Supervisor, Community Relations, or call (330) 379-1994.
