Onsite Volunteering Update:
With the city’s decreasing COVID-19 positivity rate, we have reopened select onsite volunteer opportunities! At this time, we are allowing front desk volunteers and 1:1 Financial Literacy and Job Coaching sessions onsite.
For more information, please contact the Volunteer Manager, Jameela Chaudhry, at email@example.com.
You can continue to support LPCS in the following ways:
1. Sign up to drop off or donate a meal!
During this time, we are in need of food to cover meals for 35 individuals staying at our 600 W. Fullerton shelter and 35 individuals at our 1521 N. Sedgwick shelter. To sign up for a meal shift, please visit our volunteer website, Galaxy Digital. If you’re providing a meal drop off, we strongly encourage ordering from local restaurants to support local businesses! If you cannot provide a meal but would like to make a donation to support a meal or our general operations, you can do so here.
*NOTE: When you prepare food at home, please only make food if you are feeling well. Please be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before you prepare the meal.
2. Teach financial literacy or become a job coach!
If you’re interested in being a Financial Literacy Instructor or helping out Guests with job interview prep and resumes virtually or in-person, contact Jameela at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. help us at our front desks!
We are in need of volunteers to help us at our front desks at both Fullerton and Sedgwick! If you’d like to sign up for a shift, please visit our volunteer website, Galaxy Digital, to do so.
Volunteers are the life line of our organization; we couldn’t serve over 500 individuals a year without our network of over 1,700 active volunteers. There is a volunteer at LPCS in some capacity 24 hours, 7 days a week! In 2019, LPCS expanded our services with two locations, creating plenty of opportunity for everyone to get involved.
Please note you must be 18 years or older to volunteer at LPCS. However, children of any age are welcome to accompany meal groups with the supervision of a parent or guardian. Upcoming orientation dates are listed below. For more information on individual and group volunteer opportunities, email us at email@example.com.
Upcoming Volunteer Orientations (Takes place at 1521 N. Sedgwick)
In order to limit the amount of people coming in and out of our building, we have cancelled all volunteer orientations until further notice. We hope to have them up and running again shortly!
