Volunteer and help your neighbors in Elkhart, IN!
Volunteering at Church Community Services is a wonderful way to give back by sharing your gifts, having fun, and getting involved. CCS offers great opportunities, whether you are looking to volunteer regularly or you are just interesting in something short-term.
Individual Volunteer Opportunities
Prior to volunteering, we ask that all volunteers attend one volunteer orientation session. These sessions help you get to know Church Community Services a little better, while allowing us to find a good fit for your interests. To schedule an orientation session, please email Gwen Hershberger at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 574-295-3673 ext 112.
Here are a few volunteer possibilities to consider:
assisting guests with their shopping in the food pantry
unloading food deliveries
rescuing and sorting donations from local merchants
setting up the food pantry for daily food distributions
delivering groceries monthly to homebound individuals
hosting a food drive with your school, organization, church, book club, etc.
cutting and sewing textiles for our Soup of Success program

Group Volunteer Opportunities
Are you part of a Sunday School Class, service club, sorority, coffee group, business, etc. that would like to serve the community?
