Current Volunteer Opportunities

Harvest Festival Committee Member (Northern Illinois)

Be part of a committee that meets monthly to plan, solicit for and attract people to LCFS’ fall fundraiser, the Harvest Festival.

Adopt an Office

Social workers and child welfare workers at LCFS help stabilize and restore families dealing with the consequences of issues such as poverty, addiction or domestic violence. Their role can be stressful, overwhelming and emotionally draining. By adopting an LCFS office, you or your organization can boost the spirits of employees who truly work on the front lines. This may include providing a meal or treats to an office, decorating an office for a holiday, or holding a drive to collect needed items at the site.
