Long Island Cares supports nearly 600 food pantries, soup kitchens, and emergency shelters, some of which need the support of regular volunteers.  If you wish to volunteer with one of our member agencies, please contact them directly to see if they are in need of volunteer support.

Volunteer just a few hours of your time with Long Island Cares and help make a difference in the lives of thousands of Long Islanders who are experiencing hunger, poverty or food insecurity.

Volunteers are a very important part of our operation. If it were not for our community volunteers, we could not do what we do!

*****Please note we do not accommodate court-ordered community service.
