“Each of you has been blessed with one of God’s many wonderful gifts to be used in the service of others. So use your gift well.” – 1 Peter 4:10
Exactly how can a small staff impact over 10,000 people in crisis, hundreds of job seekers and approximately 9,000 children in need each year? Well, simply put, they don’t. Most services at Christian Community Service Center are effectively performed by volunteers. In fact, about 2,000 volunteers contribute to our mission every year! Students, retirees, stay-at-home parents, working professionals–there is a volunteer spot at CCSC for everyone.
There are a variety of volunteer service opportunities at CCSC. Some positions are team-oriented while others are more independent. Many volunteer opportunities involve direct client services while others focus on fundraising or administration. Some jobs require ongoing involvement, and others can be seasonal or occasional.
When you give to CCSC, every gift makes a difference. Your generosity helps struggling families get back on their feet. Learn more about a gift that would be right for you and your family or make a gift today.
CCSC operates two food pantries and is always grateful for donated items to help our neighbors in need. Food drives–no matter how large or small–are a great way to contribute to our mission AND help stretch CCSC’s budget.
