Our Mission

The mission of The Emergency Assistance Center is to provide food, clothing and personal hygiene items, as well as seasonal support, to our Northern Summit County neighbors in need.


Hello Friends. We have created two Amazon Lists, one for most needed food and one for hygiene items. We have tried to include items that are currently available, but as anyone who has tried to order these items from Amazon knows, the status can change very quickly. We will gladly accept any food or hygiene items that you can find. Please be careful when you order to select ‘One-Time Purchase’ rather than the default ‘Subscribe and Save.’ We have specified a shipping address of a trusted member of our team rather than the Center so that we will be sure to receive shipments that arrive on nights and weekends.

If you would like pick up items for us when you shop, you can still safely donate in person anytime we are open M-F 8am-4pm. Please call when you arrive and stay in your car. We will come out and collect the donations. THANK YOU for thinking of TEAC and your neighbors in need during these difficult times!

What We Do


The Emergency Assistance Center (TEAC) is first and foremost a food pantry, providing a monthly 5-day supply of food. Our primary goal is to feed the hungry.


We always serve those in need of emergency help, as well as those in our service area who need continued help to put food on the table.
