Volunteer with Us
Join us to make a difference in your community! By sharing your time and talents, you can inspire hope, change lives and build community.
Our work statewide is all about caring for our neighbors. It is about volunteers like you — dedicated to being active citizens in the community and willing to support others. Volunteers allow LSS to touch the lives of 1 in 65 Minnesotans each year. Over 10,000 LSS volunteers contribute each year across Minnesota.
LSS will continue to be a leader in offering extraordinary responses to our neighbors. In the coming days, as we learn more about the impact of COVID-19 on our communities and on LSS as an organization, we will update this page with the ways that you can support our work. Whether through volunteerism, donations, notes of encouragement or prayers for healing, we hope that you will join us in caring for our neighbors.
See our COVID-19 volunteer protocol for more on our response and guidance on how to stay safe and protect those we serve as you volunteer.
