Be A Do-er

At Red Oak, giving opportunities don’t always involve money, they can involve investing your time, energy and resources – in a way that uses your gifts and talents.

Join Our Board

At Red Oak, our board, associate board, and endowment board members play an important role in shaping the vision, values and mission of our agency and supporting our events.

Participate in our Service Projects

Community support is at the heart of all we do at Red Oak. From backpacks and uniforms to Thanksgiving baskets and holiday gift drives, there’s lots of ways to give back to those in need with us.


Whether you’re interested in serving as an iC.A.R.E. mentor, stuffing sponsorship packets, or helping to organize and distribute supplies to students and staff, we can always use an extra set of hands from a volunteer that’s ready to “Be the Change”.

Holiday Giving

How Will You Make an Impact This Holiday Season?

Help Us Provide Thanksgiving Meals for 300 Families in Need this Holiday Season

Turkey and pie donations have already been secured from our generous community partners. To complete the meal for each family of 6-8 we need:

  • 2 boxes of stuffing mix
  • 2 boxes of mashed potatoes
  • 4 cans of vegetables
  • 1 Package of Dinner Rolls
  • 4 boxes of Mac and Cheese
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 2 boxes of Jiffy Corn Mix

Thanksgiving meal donations should be dropped off to 611 W. Market St. by 4:00 PM on Tuesday, November 15, 2022.

Help Us Make This a Holiday to Remember by Providing Gifts for a Child in Need

Red Oak serves over 4,500 children in the community, and we need your help to make their holiday wishes come true.

  • A client (ages 3-18) in need provides a holiday wish list to Red Oak staff. 
  • YOU shop for the gift(s) based on the child’s wish list (an average financial commitment of $100 per child).
  • You wrap, tag, and bag the gifts according to instructions 

You deliver the items to our office at 611 W. Market Street in Akron by 3:00 pm on Wednesday, December 14, 2022.

Ready to Help?

We’re looking for volunteers to:

  • Donate pantry staples for our Thanksgiving Meal Kits
  • Assemble Thanksgiving Meal Kits
  • Fulfill a child’s holiday wish list

Interested volunteers please contact Jaclyn Flossie, Red Oak’s Director of Development & Marketing for more information. Or support our mission and make a monetary donation to support our efforts.
