Details:

Lutheran Social Services (LSS) serves thousands of people in need each day in 27 Ohio counties by addressing the four core societal issues of food, shelter, safety and healing. LSS offers housing and supportive services through LSS Faith Mission homeless shelters and domestic violence services through LSS CHOICES for Victims of Domestic Violence. Their breadth of services focus on uplifting families and strengthening communities.

 

Join Besa and LSS to sort and organize donations! Both CHOICES and Faith Mission rely heavily on donations to support those affected by homelessness and domestic violence who are staying at the LSS Shelters. As a volunteer, you'll help by sorting through donations, changing inventory, and organizing the donation storage closet so residents are able to access items quickly. 

 

LSS will practice social distancing. Volunteers are required to bring their own mask, as LSS will not provide any. No client interaction will take place. If you have your own gloves, face mask and/or hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it/use your own. 

 

The health and safety of volunteers is a priority. If you are sick, over the age of 60, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
