Volunteer Updates
We want to start by saying thank you! Since June 1st, we have welcomed volunteers back onsite and we are thrilled to see your faces again at both our Sedgwick and Fullerton locations.

We are continuing to monitor the current city mandates and guidelines. If you are planning to volunteer onsite, masks are mandatory inside our buildings. Meal groups are capped at 6 people and volunteers will not be permitted to dine with our Guests at this time. The safety of our Guests, staff, and volunteers is our number one priority and we will continue to keep you updated on any protocol changes.
If you'd like to support off-site, you can continue to provide meal drop-offs as meals are a critical need and are always appreciated! Preparing bag lunches is always a great option too if you're looking for an off-site group volunteer activity. 

Thank you for remaining flexible and patient as we continue to navigate the pandemic. We truly appreciate your continued meal donations, front desk shifts, and overall dedication to LPCS which allows us to maintain our shelter operations and continue serving our Guests.

For all opportunity descriptions and to sign up, please visit our volunteer website, Galaxy Digital.
 
Volunteer Needs
 
We are in major need of front desk volunteers! Our front desk shifts are a critical need and help us to maintain our shelter operations. They are also a great way to get to know our Guests and support LPCS! Our biggest needs for front desk shifts are: 12-2pm, 2-4pm, and 4-6pm. To sign up, please visit our volunteer website, Galaxy Digital.
