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). Please complete our volunteer form!
Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult but they may work with their parent or guardian.
Children under 18 must have a parent or guardian attend their first event to register them as a volunteer.
Who can volunteer?
We welcome individuals, church groups, youth groups, and service groups. We offer community service hours for students and court ordered service. If you are completing court ordered community service at the pantry, please be sure you are logging your hours in our volunteer management system. Once you have completed your hours, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and a formal letter verifying your hours worked will be provided within 3 business days.
The amount of time you commit is up to you as a volunteer! Some of our volunteers come out once a month or once a week while others are onsite several days each week! We’re happy to have you no matter how much time you can commit!
We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities on almost every of the week including retail pickups, stocking shelves, cleaning, food distribution events, remote volunteer opportunities (grant writing, graphic design, fundraising, etc.). Once you are registered in the volunteer management system (using the volunteer form), you will be able to see and sign up for current volunteer opportunities. If there’s something you want to do, just let us know! We’re a growing organization and we’re always ready for new opportunities!
What to wear
Wear comfortable clothing and shoes – we’re happy casual at the Pantry!
Our Volunteer Management System
Love Thy Neighbor uses the InitLive Volunteer Management System for all our volunteer scheduling and signups!
What do you need to do to join in the fun?
Register yourself in the system.
Once your application is approved, you will be able to sign up for upcoming shifts and, if you’re a new volunteer, we will schedule a quick orientation for you with one of our team members!
