Volunteer With Tri-Lakes Cares!



Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Tri-Lakes Cares.

Here at Tri-Lakes Cares we are able to provide services to our community and serve the needs of our clients because of our dedicated volunteers!

Our volunteers carry out many of the day-to-day operational activities for Tri-Lakes Cares. They interact with clients, stock our food pantry, distribute grocery orders, process donations, pack Snack Packs for local youth, and contribute in many other ways to the success of Tri-Lakes Cares. There are many areas within Tri-Lakes Cares that you can help serve!

We would love for you to join our amazing team of volunteers!! Check out these short videos below of some important areas to volunteer with Tri-Lakes Cares.

Special Volunteer Opportunities:


There are several groups in our community that continue to support our efforts to help those in need in our community! Monument Hill Kiwanis supports the Empty Bowls Dinner & Silent Auction; they also help with Thanksgiving and Christmas distribution; and coordinate the delivery of the food from Harvest of Love. The Boy and Girl Troops of America also contribute to Tri-Lakes Cares. Many churches, businesses and organizations throughout the surrounding community support Tri-Lakes Cares’ mission. If your group is interested in doing a project with TLC, please contact us!



Tri-Lakes Cares hosts two youth volunteer projects per year. The first youth volunteer project will take place in April 2022, which is our TLC Food Pantry Drive, and the second youth project will take place in Fall 2022 (TBA).

For our April Food Drive, we have all youth meet at Tri-Lakes Cares on Tuesday, March 22 from 3:30 to 4:00 p.m. to learn about our food pantry programs and take a tour of TLC. Each youth will have about three weeks to do a food drive in their community and prepare to bring what they have collected back to Tri-Lakes Cares on Tuesday, April 12 at 3:30 p.m. They will break down the individual cans/snacks/items into containers and will learn how to process these donations into our food pantry. This process will take approximately 1.5 hours. This project is designed for youth to achieve their required civic hours.
