Put Your Hands Where Your Heart Is!
At Lackland Fisher House, our volunteers play a key role in supporting our Mission and Vision. Volunteer your time and talent to help military families who are away from home while their loved ones receive medical treatment due to illness, disease or injury. Your loving heart and helping hands can support them through the services provided by Lackland Fisher House.
No amount of time is too short; no amount of talent is too small! Volunteer shifts are normally available Monday through Friday, 9am-4pm. Currently, we do not have weekend availability. Sign up individually or with a group (groups are limited to 8 people). Volunteer opportunities include the following:
- meal preparation for our guests
- run a goods donation drive from our Wish List
- prepare and drop off baked goods for our guests
- daily household jobs (such as folding linens, cleaning, re-stocking household goods)
- special projects or events (such as organizing a Bingo/game night or musical presentation)
- provide free tickets to a base or community event (such as a sports or musical event)
- decorate for holidays
- house monitor
