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 one full-time, paid staff member, 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! All prospective volunteers are invited to attend a volunteer orientation meeting to learn more about the ministry and the opportunities for service. (Attendance at an orientation is required before new volunteers may begin work at the Co-Op.) Orientations are normally held at 7 pm on the third Thursday evening of even-numbered months, but check the schedule below to be sure of any particular date.
