Volunteers are essential to the work of Sharing Life. Whether you’re helping serve clients through our food pantry, sorting clothes, packing meals, or volunteering at one of our events, you are making a difference in the lives of our clients and our community and we could not do this without you.
There are many areas and times in which you and/or your group can volunteer. With our full services list, those volunteer opportunities can range from admin to restocking our pantry shelves or helping bring Christmas cheer to a family during our annual Christmas Faire.
We are always looking for volunteers to serve at Sharing Life. Times range from 8:30 AM – 7:00 PM. We could not serve our clients without your help, which is why you are VITAL to our community. You can sign up below!
We LOVE group volunteers! Volunteering at Sharing Life is a great team-building activity for your company, life group, school, and any other group you’re a part of! Groups allow us to work on larger projects in our facility.
These volunteers are CHANGING LIVES!
