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.


Christmas Lane 2020

Christmas Lane is a seasonal support program of The Emergency Assistance Center that, with the incredible support of our community, provides free gifts for our clients' children. Due to safety concerns during the pandemic, we have made the difficult decision that this year

the program will be a gift card distribution only.


We need your help!! There are several ways you can give to support this program.
