Thank you for your interest in volunteering your time and talents for LCAC! Volunteers are essential to serve the, on average, 200 families per week representing almost 800 people! For example, the Food Program relies on 50 volunteers a month to ensure that food is picked up at area stores, organized on the shelves, packaged for dissemination, distributed and recorded. LCAC has innumerable opportunities for you to get involved in positively impacting other people’s lives.

There are a wide variety of volunteer opportunities at LCAC including: food pick-up, thrift store donation sorting and/or sales, retail display, tutoring, stocking shelves, special event set-up and/or staffing, seasonal donation collection (back to school, Thanksgiving and Holiday), administrative support, thrift store advertising assistant, furniture donation pick-up and many others.

New to volunteering at LCAC?

If you have never volunteered with us before (or you may have in the past, but it has been a long time), simply select one of the links below for either a “1-Time Volunteer Opportunity” or an “Ongoing Volunteer Opportunity.” The “1-Time” opportunities are those that happen at a specific time, date and place, such as Thanksgiving food distribution or a fundraising event. The “Ongoing” opportunities are those where we are looking for a volunteer that is willing to commit to a regular, ongoing schedule (for a set period of time or open ended), such as volunteering once a month or once a week in the thrift store. You can get more details about each project by clicking on the “project name” or “event name.” Once you have decided upon a specific opportunity that interests you, click on that project/event and select the “Not registered?” button where you will be prompted to complete a Volunteer Profile for our volunteer database.
