Volunteering your time and talent is a great way to support LAFS and help your neighbors in need. Volunteers who are in contact with clients must be ages 18 or older. Under 18 may help with non client contact projects. There are many ways you can volunteer, from working with the clients on Thursday or helping with food drives. You never know how you can help until you ask us what you can do.
