Be A Volunteer

We need you.

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

Slowly but surely, that winter feeling is creeping into the air. Here at LBFE, we’re busy hosting community groups through our Friendship & Flowers delivery and visiting program while wrapping up an awesome Fall semester for the CitySites and Community Connections programs. It has been an incredible season of creating intergenerational relationships across the city. We’re also beginning preparations for our December holiday events.

Volunteers will be making meal deliveries to isolated elders on Christmas Day, and we will also host a Winter Celebration gathering in December. If you aren’t available for any of those programs, please consider donating nut-free cookies for the Christmas meals deliveries.

As of November 16th, we reached our volunteer goals for our Thanksgiving day programs. We anticipate another great community response for our December programming too!

Returning volunteers can register early for the Christmas programs beginning on December 1st. New volunteers can register here beginning December 11th.
