how you can help

FOOD PANTRY - Can you or your organization have a food drive that will help keep our shelves stocked with non-perishable food items for our clients? If you organize a large food drive that requires a truck or van delivery, please click the blue button above and get in touch with us.  We can give you a list of desperately needed items.  


If you collect only a few boxes of food, donations are accepted every day of the week between 4:30 and 5:30 PM and also Saturdays between 10:00 AM and Noon. We're located at 308 Gorman Ave., Laurel.

BAG LUNCHES - We need families, groups or organizations who can prepare 45 to 50 bag lunches for our soup kitchen clients. If you can commit to providing these once a month or once a quarter - whatever you can do - that would be greatly appreciated! To schedule your bag lunch delivery with the coordinator or to ask a question, please click the blue button at the top of the page.


KITCHEN - We need standby volunteers who can assist established kitchen crews who prepare evening meals and crews who serve the clients and clean Elizabeth House afterwards. Interested? Click the blue button at the top of the page.  


STUDENT COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS - Students who need to fulfill their community service hours can assist either established kitchen crews who prepare evening meals or crews who serve the clients and clean Elizabeth House afterwards. Simply come to the back entrance of Elizabeth House at either 4:30 PM or 6:00 PM and ask to speak to the shift supervisor. The supervisor will let you know if they need extra volunteers that evening.
