We welcome your interest in volunteering with Love Thy Neighbor.  Volunteering is a wonderful way to make connections in our community, serve others, and have fun doing it (Note: having fun is optional but highly recommended).

Who Can Volunteer

We welcome individuals, church groups, youth groups, and service groups.  We offer community service hours for students and court ordered service.

Time Commitment

The amount of time you commit is up to you, as a volunteer.  Some of our volunteers come out once a month.  For others, LTN is a part-time job and they’re on site several days each week.

Day by Day Work

The following daily work guide is accurate as of September 2022, but check the SignupGenius volunteer links at the top of this page for the latest information on days & times.

SUNDAYS: volunteers begin set-up around 10AM or soon after.  Service opportunities are available until 6PM that evening.  Some volunteers work part of the day, others work the full day.

WEDNESDAYS: our Cleaning Days! From 9AM to 3PM we work exclusively on getting the place cleaned up.  If you’re great at vacuuming, tidying up, or scrubbing toilets, this is your day!

THURSDAYS: Truck unloading starting around noon.  If you like moving boxes around or stocking shelves, please join us.  Around 4PM on Thursday we start setting up for the evening food distribution; doors open at 5:30pm for customers.  Volunteers are needed for cleanup, and usually done about 9PM.

FRIDAYS: Truck unloading starting around 11AM, lasting until about 5PM depending on how much we get.

On Saturdays and Sundays we also need volunteers to pick up retail donations from Food Lion, Walmart, and Wegmans.  If you’ve got a truck or a van and can lift 50 pound boxes, this job’s for you!
