How You Can Help

Picture of volunteersLearn About Our Efforts


To accomplish all that it does, LCS relies heavily on the help of a vast number of talented and dedicated volunteers. Over 400 strong, these volunteers staff the pantries, and also help out in the office handling some very sophisticated tasks. A typical volunteer task lasts 2 to 3 hours and is designed to include specific goals and hands-on direction. If you would like to explore volunteering at LCS, but don't know where to start, contact Lyn Budd, Volunteer Coordinator, at 302 654-8886, ext. 107 or complete the form below. Most people who try it enjoy it and find it immensely rewarding.
