Just a bit of your time…
The Lawrenceville Co-Op relies on volunteers who commit their time on a regular basis to sort and distribute food, counsel and pray with clients, provide office support, and maintain our building and grounds. Last year, more than 300 volunteers worked almost 14,000 hours for our ministry. Our many volunteers make it possible to have only two full-time and four part-time staff members, thereby allowing us to use most of our funding to assist clients.
Volunteers may work as much or as little as they prefer – many of our volunteers have been helping out regularly for many years!
To volunteer, you must be 16 years of age or older and be able to lift and carry items. Teens and children under 16 can volunteer with a parent or adult supervision.
Volunteers are needed Monday 9 am – 1 pm and 3:30-7 pm. Tuesday – Thursday from 9 am – 1 pm. Friday from 9 am – noon and Saturday from 10-11:30 am. We are also in need of individuals to help unload trucks 7-8:30 am during the week.
Please note our Saturday volunteer slot is typically booked with volunteer groups. If you have a group of 10-12 who would like to take a Saturday, please contact Lisa Engberg at email@example.com to schedule.

Volunteers are needed for:
Intake: Handle the initial contact with the clients and assess their needs.
Computer Work: Accessing the client database and updating files.
Pantry Intake: Volunteer on non-client days. Receiving donated items and stocking the shelves and storage space.
Pantry Distribution: Volunteer on client days to fill client orders. May help with donations as needed.
Food Donation and Pick-Up Donated Food: We are always grateful for donated food items from individuals, churches and businesses. There is also a need to have donated items picked up that cannot be delivered, such as bread and pastries from Publix.
Building and Grounds Helper: This would be on an as needed basis. Perfect for church or business groups.
Client Choice: Help make phone calls with clients to determine their needs. Help pack boxes for pickup.
Client Interviewer: Meet with our clients and discuss their needs/story, how we might help and pray with them. *This is temporarily on hold due to Covid and high client numbers.
