Volunteer Opportunities

We are serving our neighbors four days a week which means that there are many opportunities to serve throughout the week!

Please note that we are now requiring that all volunteers serving inside be vaccinated against Covid-19.

Below you’ll find a brief summary of the different jobs we have to offer:

  • Kitchen Prep: Every morning, we need help preparing the daily meal.
  • Serving Meals:  Every Monday- Thursday from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm, hot meals are served to our neighbors in our dining room.
  • Emergency Grocery Distribution: Every Wednesday, we distribute food, diapers, and personal hygiene to our neighbors.
  • My Neighbors Closet: Every Thursday, we distribute clothing. While we are currently at capacity with donations, we need volunteers to process and sort all the garments throughout the week.

For inquiries about group volunteering, please contact our Volunteer Manager directly at lford@neighborstogethersc.org

Covid-19 Precautions

In order to ensure that our neighbors remain safe from Covid-19, all indoor volunteers and staff are required to be vaccinated and we request that you provide proof of immunization. In addition, we plan to continue to maintain social distancing, conduct routine health checks and most importantly keep wearing masks!

All who enter the building must certify that they are symptom-free and may be asked to provide a picture of their immunization card at the door. Those who are not vaccinated are welcome to serve outdoors at our special Saturday events.
