Group Volunteer Opportunities

At the Lighthouse many groups have joined us as volunteers; maybe yours will be next! Sports teams, families, schools, youth and church groups have all volunteered their time in the past.

Groups often volunteer in Food Services, helping to prepare, serve and clean up after a meal. There are other services that your group can offer to the Lighthouse. To learn more about these options please contact the Volunteer Coordinator. To keep our kitchen free of congestion and to ensure every volunteer has a task, we request that groups be no larger than 4 total, including chaperones if required.

The volunteer coordinator will get in touch with you to confirm information and set a date or schedule. Due to a high volume of volunteer applications leading up to the holiday seasons, it may take some time for your group to be contacted, rest assured the volunteer coordinator makes every effort to respond to applications in order of arrival and the volunteer coordinator, along with the Lighthouse appreciate your interest in volunteering and your patience. If your group is interested in volunteering for a holiday meal, we suggest calling or sending an email 3-4 months prior, as the positions do fill up quickly. We look forward to you volunteering with us!
