Volunteering

Interested in volunteering but don't knoww here to start? Summit Girl Scout Troop 45273 recently started a project to work towards earning their Bronze Award. They gathered information from organziations in Summit who need support, donations and volunteers and created a website to share with local families, students and anyone who would like to help make a difference in Summit. We hope you will use this resource help people who need help in our town:
