Helping The Community
The SAM Center operates a free commissary (pantry) of non-perishable food items, meat, personal hygiene items, cleaning supplies, paper products and baby / toddler necessities including food and diapers.
In addition to the commissary Serving Area Military offers three-day emergency food bags and warming bags that are distributed at several location throughout Northeast Ohio.
Various types of clothing are made available to clients when possible including socks, t-shirts, hats, baby / children’s items and seasonal clothing. All clothing is new.
The SAM Center Commissary allows our local veterans, active service members and their widows to “shop” for up to two-weeks’ of groceries at no charge to them.
Three-Day Food Kits
The three-day food kits contain enough nutritional supplies to last an individual for roughly three days. This allows them time for planning long-term solutions.
The warming bags contain items to help keep our heroes warm, including gloves, hats, blankets, hand-warmers, tea and more.
For assistance with these services please contact the SAM Center.
