More than 600 volunteers have been working behind the scenes to benefit Akron’s North Hill neighborhood for the interfaith day of service known as First Serve, taking place Sunday, Sept. 13.

First Serve is led by the First Congregational Church of Hudson in partnership with the Islamic Society of Akron & Kent and Temple Beth Shalom of Hudson. The group partners with many organizations each year to concentrate on improving a neighborhood.

This is First Serve’s third year of rallying its network for Akron’s International neighborhood, with a focus on the schools. In previous years, volunteers have targeted the Summit Lake neighborhood and areas in Cleveland and Hudson.

Because of the pandemic, First Serve is operating differently this year than the past eight years. Pre-pandemic, the volunteers gathered in the selected neighborhood for the day and went to work on a multitude of projects. Read more here >>.
