Need For Community Volunteers

Lakewood Community Services Center Seeks Volunteers!

If you have a few hours to spare each week and if you want to join LCSC in the fight to end hunger in the community, these volunteer opportunities could be a perfect fit for you.

LCSC is the emergency food pantry for Lakewood, Rocky River and Westlake and we could use some dedicated help during the hours of 9:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. We currently provide food assistance to over 7,000 individuals each year! We could not do this important work without our volunteers.

There are two ways in with you can help us.

Intake Volunteers on Tuesdays and Fridays: The intake volunteers are the first people clients meet when they come in to the center for food and this position is critical for making sure all individuals and families are warmly welcomed. The duties of this position include entering data into our database and ensuring that the many other services here at LCSC and in the community are explained to all.

Pantry Volunteers on Thursdays: Pantry volunteers are responsible for making sure that there is a consistent flow of emergency food available to make sure that clients are served quickly and efficiently. We are so fortunate to receive donated food and personal care items from the community and pantry volunteers are also responsible for sorting these donated items so they can be distributed quickly.

If you are interested in finding out more please contact Colleen Timm at 216-226-6466.
