Some of the activities include a free car wash and a free car care stop located in the Arby's parking lot. This is an opportunity for single moms and others to have someone inspect their car at no cost.
Lawn care will be performed at the homes of some of the city's elderly and widows. Another group will clean up the municipal lot across from the former Timberlanes.
The Laundry Love Ministry, helping people with their laundry needs, will be at the Quaker Laundry in the Salem Plaza.
Another group will visit residents at Essex I and II, at 1 and 2 p.m., to share devotions and sing.
Volunteers will greet people at Walmart and distribute bottled water and doughnuts. Other groups will be visiting blighted areas in Salem delivering personal hygiene items and friendly encouragement.
"It is the church's mission to share Christ's love by serving the people in our community, doing things to help the people of Salem," said Marilee Bodendorfer, public relations coordinator at the church. "We are very concerned about the needs in Salem and we want to 'Do Something' about it. It begins with people in the community stepping up and saying, 'How can we help you?'"
