Volunteers are an indispensable part of life throughout Lutheran Services Carolinas. Compassionate people with loving spirits and generous hearts, volunteers contribute thousands of hours in time and talent to LSC annually. Those individuals who donate 100 hours or more of volunteer service during a calendar year are named to the LSC Shepherd Society.

During this time of COVID-19, we still need volunteers to step up. Right now, many of our nursing home staff are facing family financial difficulties, and our homes are accepting food pantry/household items donations of things like peanut butter, canned soup, crackers, dry pasta, cleaning supplies, toilet paper, paper towels.

If you would like to order a meal for nursing home staff, please contact the home's administrator.

If you can send cards or notes of cheer to our nursing home residents, please contact the home's administrator.

Senior Living Community Volunteers

Trinity senior living communities and adult day service programs are active, busy places where multiple generations meet in a spirit of fellowship and cooperation. Schools, clubs, and civic groups are afforded opportunities for intergenerational projects, community service, internships, and job experience. Volunteers can lead educational, cultural, and musical events, or donate expertise in graphic design, gardening, technology, exercise, or wellness.

Volunteers can also help frail nursing home residents with individualized attention by visiting at bedside, and by helping with reading, writing or simple tasks when needed. Volunteers also assist with meals and snacks or simply provide companionship and a bit of extra attention.

Just One Story


One afternoon at Trinity Oaks health and rehab, resident Cindy Rentz heard Prudy Taylor’s booming voice – probably the biggest voice you’ll ever hear from such a petite woman – from all the way down the hall.

Other Volunteer Opportunities

The child and family programs of LSC, in both North and South Carolina, are continually looking for individuals and groups to volunteer in a variety of ways. Volunteers may be needed to paint, landscape, or renovate LSC group homes, or help in the recruitment of foster families. Volunteers are also needed to help refugees acclimate to life in the U.S. by tutoring English, mentoring, providing transportation, or setting up homes or apartments for newly arriving refugees.

Churches and other community groups may wish to participate in the Circle of Welcome, which supports LSC refugee clients. Learn more here.
