Here are a few volunteer opportunities that we currently have open. Please contact Cher Frampton at (302) 654-8886, ext 107 or cframpton @ if you are interested in any of these openings.

NEWFood Pantry Statistician - Opening Filled

Lutheran Community Services is currently looking for a new statistician to start assisting the current volunteer who has been in place for 15 years and eventually take over the entire operation.

Job duties will include:

1.       Type data into an Excel spreadsheet

2.       Eventually tabulate the data to produce the final reports

3.       Be trusted with the information from the intake sheets

Requirements: Person must be willing to take this on as a long term volunteer job. Job takes about 3 hours a week of data entry. Approximately 2 hours a month putting final report together. Person must have a very good understanding of Microsoft office, and Excel. 

Front Desk Receptionist - Opening Filled
We are currently looking for an individual to help work our front desk on Monday and Friday mornings/early afternoon at our Rodney Street location in Wilmington. We are looking for someone who has strong phone skills, is good with the public and greeting clients, volunteers, donors, or anyone coming through our doors.  
Some duties include:
Keeping workspace tidy and notices up to date. 
Explain/talk about LCS to visitors and invite them to monthly food for thought tours.
Collect voice mails and answer phones
Cover staff for lunch breaks
Assist program staff as needed (Making copies, organizing files, shredding etc.) 

Food Drive Coordinators (Unlimited Openings)

Thanksgiving and Christmas are not the only times of the year food drives are needed. People are in need of food year round. But many do not think about this volunteering opportunity during the summer. LCS can provide you with step by step instructions on ideas of how to hold a food drive, or you can get creative and come up with ideas of your own.  Ask your church, schools, employers, boy scouts/girl scouts, community center, book club, family and friends to get involved. 

Food Drives are also an excellent way for high school students to earn their volunteer hours. They learn all about team work, time management, marketing, community and so much more. Every hour they put into planning, meeting and executing their food drive counts as volunteer hours. This has proven to be a very successful volunteer activity for both the students and LCS! 
Walk Committee
We are looking for some fresh faces to join us on our Walk Committee. The Hunger Walk Run 5K is being held on September 21, 2013 at Rockford Park in Wilmington. This is an all inclusive family event, where there is something for everyone. The first Walk Committee meeting will be held on Monday, March 25th, 4pm at our Rodney Street Office in Wilmington.
Committee members are responsible for ensuring the walk goes according to plan. Helps to determine the direction of the event, help establish new contacts in the community, and hopefully bring new ideas to the table. Starting this month the committee will meet monthly to discuss a plan of action and decide who is going to do what. Cannot make it this month? Never fear! It is not to members can jump on at any time.
