How You Can Help

The front office may be the head of the organization but our volunteers are definitely the heart.

  • Our longest serving volunteer has been with the organization for eighteen years
  • An average of 70 people donate their time each month to service our clients through our various programs
  • Our volunteers typically contribute over 20,000 hours of their time on an annual basis; saving over $400,000 in labor costs; something to cheer about!

We could not begin to fulfill our mission in Lincoln County without the dedication, devotion and deeds of these wonderful people.

Be Jeweled is on eBay!  You can continue your support of Food Share of Lincoln County by purchasing an item of fine gold and silver jewelry.  Rings, bracelets, pendants, earrings and more are available at reasonable prices.  All proceeds go to our pantries and partner agencies to help provide nutritious food for families, individuals, seniors and veterans.  Since we will not be having an in-person sale this year due to the virus, this is your opportunity to acquire something fabulous for yourself or as a gift.  Happy shopping!
