Volunteers are the life force behind the operations of The Society of St. Vincent de Paul. We must continually recruit volunteers to fulfill our mission of helping our neighbors in need. We welcome adults as well as teens. It’s a great way for students to fulfill service hour requirements. Everyone has something to offer and you are invited to join us with whatever time and God-given talents you wish to donate. We ask only that you embrace and adhere to the mission of the Society. We know that you will find it to be one of the most rewarding things you can do. (A guardian must accompany any volunteer under the age of 18)
Our Erlanger Store Food Pantry serves our NKY residents in need. Responding to God’s call to “Feed the Hungry,” we strive to manifest God’s love by providing a selection of food and personal items to those in need in an atmosphere of dignity and respect for clients and volunteers. Some of the ways you might help are:
- Handing out pizzas
- Sorting fresh produce
- Pantry Day
- Organizing Pantry
- Bagging Groceries
The Call Center is the connection those in need have with the Vincentians in our 30 conferences. Volunteers in our call center are the first voice that directs them to help in their area. It’s a relaxed atmosphere of care and blessings.
- Take calls from those in need
- Help with Seasonal calls (Summer Breeze, Christmas, etc.)
During the year we have different events where volunteers are able to enjoy a variety of ways to help us help others.
- Go Local Cincinnati Garden (April-May)
- Turkeyfoot Trot 5K (October-November)
- Coat Drive (October-November)
- Christmas Donations (November-December)
- Adopt a Family (November-December)
There are many ways to serve as a volunteer in our stores. From sorting clothes and other items to picking up trash in the parking lot, there is something for everyone to do!
Join our 750,000 worldwide volunteers, nearly 500 of them in Northern Kentucky and experience the spiritual reward that comes from being the face of Christ and helping those in need.
