Volunteers outnumber staff 14:1. Without them - there's no way we would be able to deliver as many groceries, stuff as many grocery bags, or raise as much money at our fundraisers.

At Lifelong, we are proud to have over 1,400 dedicated volunteers helping us deliver food, housing, and health services to people living with chronic illness. 

Our volunteers enhance people’s quality of life and allow us to provide cost-effective and high-quality services. Whether you are looking for one-time or ongoing volunteer opportunities, we have a variety of volunteer needs to accommodate students, groups and individuals.
