We are blessed by our volunteers, and, frankly, we couldn’t get the work done without them. With around 5,000 volunteers logging more than 30,000 hours a year, they’re indispensable!
CEOs, teachers, homemakers, retired persons, and teenagers all have a place at LifePath. So do groups — churches, schools, businesses, civic organizations, and more.
Here are just a few activities where volunteers are always needed:
- supply and/or prepare a meal at our women & children’s shelter
- join our outreach team and help with various activities
- commit to praying for LifePath and our guests
- sponsor a “game night” or “craft night” at the women & children’s shelter
- collect old cell phones and inkjet cartridges to recycle
- organize a paper drive (paper towels, tissues, toilet paper, etc.)
- organize a personal care products drive (toothbrushes, soap, razors, etc.)
- use your talents to bake, cook, crochet, sew, paint, fix a leak, and more
- research and write grants
- mentor or teach a class for our guests
