Come together to help others on their healing journeys.
Because we serve about 400 meals per day from our kitchen, we always have plenty of opportunities for groups to serve! This often means volunteering during a meal shift, or helping behind-the-scenes with simple food preparation or cleaning.
WSM has a fully operational kitchen and dining facility that serves
3 meals a day to our guests and staff. Volunteers who sign up to serve during a meal shift may be asked to assist with bussing tables, serving food on the line, simple food preparation (i.e. cutting fruit and vegetables, etc.), cleaning, or may be asked to assist with other kitchen tasks, depending on where help is needed most that day.
The fall and winters seasons are always busy for Water Street, especially during our annual Rescue Mission Food Drive event! Groups of 8-10 volunteers can join us on a Thursday morning to sort incoming food donations from our Fall Food Drive. Contact the Volunteer Office to see which dates are still available!

We are incredibly grateful to individuals and groups who offer their time and professional services to Water Street. Please contact the Volunteer Office to see what opportunities may be available in your area of expertise.
In the event that we do not have a project that matches the needs/goals of your group, please let us know if we may contact you at a later date if a project becomes available.
*Due to limited staffing on evenings and weekends, opportunities are currently only offered during weekday business hours.
In our Winter Weekend Day Shelter (WWDS) we invite volunteers inside to experience a unique opportunity to connect with guests. Through games and activities or just showing up to chat, volunteers show guests they are loved. We call this Presence Ministry and it’s an important way we build community.
Saturday & Sundays (December thru March)
Morning & Afternoon shifts available
Great opportunity for small groups of up to 10 adult volunteers!

Consider hosting a donation drive for Water Street’s most used items! Your food donations help us serve about 400 hot meals every day, as well as provide groceries to hundreds of Lancaster City families each week. Your donations of essential items meet the everyday needs of our Guests.
