Weekday Opportunities

Back to Listing

The following weekday Faith in Action activities are currently available:

United Ministries
United Ministries uses volunteers to answer the phones and greet visitors in both of our buildings. We have openings on Mondays 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM, Tuesdays 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM, and Thursdays 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Most of our volunteers come one day a week for approximately 3 hours, but we are flexible and can work to accommodate your schedule. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Claire Winkler at 335.2618. 

United Ministries Adult Education needs volunteer tutors to assist adult students preparing for the GED test. Tutors are needed in all high school subjects (Reading, Writing, Social Studies, Science and Math), with Math tutors being in the highest demand. We especially need tutors at the following times:

  • 10:00 AM - 12 noon, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday
  • 1:00 - 4:00 PM, Tuesday and Thursday
  • 5:30 - 7:00 PM, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday
Please contact Claire Winkler, 335.2618, if you are interested or have questions.

Sterling Tutors Needed!
Every child deserves the opportunity to learn how to read and succeed in school. Many students do not have the opportunity due to a lack of one on one attention and support that is needed to help them thrive in a school setting. We are looking for tutors to work with such kids. You can help once a month, twice a month, every week or every day. Tutoring occurs Mondays through Thursdays for one hour at 3:30 PM. Contact Betty Cavan, 289.9673, for more information.

Meals on Wheels
Meals on Wheels Greenville currently has a need for volunteers to fill open routes. You can do it just once, weekly, monthly, or as often as you'd like. Learn more or email volunteer@MOWgvl.org to sign up for a route!

Mission Backpack
Did you know that a number of children in Greenville County do not eat unless they are at school and receive free breakfast and lunch. Christ Church is teaming up once again with Loaves and Fishes and Robert E. Cashion Elementary School to provide meals for children in need over the weekend during the school year. Volunteers are needed to go shopping, pack 50 shopping bags, and deliver bags. Let Debbie Rice know if you are interested in helping or want to know more about this great ministry.

A Child's Haven
Share your time and help children and parents in need by volunteering with A Child's Haven, which works to transform the lives of young children who have experienced developmental delays or behavioral challenges. Many of the children served by A Child's Haven are victims of poverty, child abuse or domestic violence. Volunteers are needed in a number of different areas:

  • childcare and meal providers for parent meetings on Tuesday and Thursdays evenings,
  • classroom art and reading activities on Wednesdays,
  • classroom sponsors (field trips, holiday parties, birthday parties), and
  • clerical and special events support.

Interested? Please contact Alicia Pflug, 298.0025, ext. 19.

Greenville Literacy Association
Thousands for Greenville County adults need your help to improve their reading, writing and math skills, prepare for the GED or WorkKeys tests, or learn to speak English. Share your skills with them at Greenville Literacy and give a gift that lasts a lifetime. For more information about volunteering, call 467.3456 or visit their website.

Loaves and Fishes
Help those who are hungry here in Greenville by volunteering with Loaves & Fishes. This organization connects donors of perishable and prepared food with local human services agencies that feed the hungry. If interested in food rescue and the requirements for route volunteers, contact Loaves & Fishes.

American Leprosy Missions
Are you detail oriented and have a knack for organizing? Do you have a green thumb? Are you able to fix just about anything? Got any other special talents that youÂ’d love to share? The American Leprosy Missions are looking for volunteers to help with various special projects such as library cataloging, gardening and general office maintenance. Contact Bekah Schwanbeck at American Leprosy Missions if you would like to help.

Christ Church will provide hospitality and host up to four homeless families for a week in the All Saints Center. The Greenville Area Interfaith Hospitality Network (GAIHN) committee is in need of volunteers to cook, serve, and stay the night during this period. Contact Jenny Peer‬ if you would like to help.

Safe Harbor
Do you like to organize or have an eye for colors and fashion? If so, Safe Harbor's Resale Shop could use your help. Volunteers are needed to assist with sorting and tagging clothing and other donations. Proceeds from the Resale Shop furthers Safe Harbor's work to help victims of domestic violence in Greenville, Pickens and Oconee counties. To volunteer, contact Kim at 242.1751.

Project Host
The Project Host Soup Kitchen provides a hot lunch to needy people seven days a week. Volunteers can work a weekday shift, help prepare bag lunches on weekends, or work with neighborhood children in the "cook" program. Volunteers are also needed to help with the garden and greenhouse. Contact Sally Green for more information.
