Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers for Sussex Outreach Services Food Pantry shifts must be at least 13 years of age!  You must be registered as a volunteer before volunteering, which can be done by completing the form below.  Minors must have a form signed by their parents prior to volunteering.  Minors must also be dropped off and picked up from volunteering promptly by a responsible party.  Parents of minors are encouraged to volunteer at least once with their child.  If your group has different ideas for volunteerism for SOS, please contact Jennifer Waltz, Executive Director at director@sussexareasos.org.  There are so many wonderful and creative ways to help!  Thank you.


We are looking for volunteers to work weekday mornings, from 9am-12pm, sorting and stocking food, clothing and house ware donations.  We particularly need help on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Please contact Jennifer Waltz directly at director@sussexareasos.org if you would be interested in this very rewarding opportunity to give back to your community.


You may be aware that our SOS Food pantry and offices will be located in a new facility as part of the Sussex Village Civic Campus.  At this point we anticipate moving in within about a year. If you have ever built a house you know there are things you find out you need after the fact; curtains, garbage cans, door stops, etc.  If you have a good eye for those kinds of things SOS needs your input!

The plan is to first inventory what furniture and articles we currently have (tables, display racks, waste baskets, desks, etc). Second, based on what we have, try to determine what we might need in the new facility and third, determine what items, if any, that SOS currently uses might need to be replaced.

If you would like to be part of this group or have other ideas, please contact Pastor Tom Kent at pastortom@coslc.com or 262.246.6537
