Become a Volunteer Today! - Lake Wales Care Center

Volunteers sort food from our pantry into boxes to go out to families in need.

Every year, Care Center is amazed at the number of people in our community that volunteer their time and talents. From our start in 1985, we have depended on volunteers to help us meet the needs of others; without them, we could not do a fraction of the work we need to do.

Over the course of 31 years, more than 15,000 people have volunteered with Care Center, donating 1,097,754 hours! Volunteers help us with everything from home repairs, delivering food, organizing and selling donations, assisting in the office, wrapping gifts, packing food boxes, picking up donations, tutoring, mentoring youth, serving meals, sponsoring families, just to name a few! Volunteers are the life blood of our organization.

If you have ever volunteered at Care Center, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Thank you for sharing the love of Christ in word and in deed. You have changed the life of those you have helped. If you have never had the opportunity to volunteer with us, we would love for you to join our caring team! You will love getting to meet our other volunteers and working alongside them. We at Care Center look forward to continuing to serve with you to serve the community around us as we are “people helping people helping people.”
