Volunteer in Community

Community Volunteer Opportunities

Batavia Interfaith Food Pantry 

In addition to making donations, Immanuel members help at the Pantry on the first Friday of each month, assisting clients with their purchases and providing a friendly greeting. 


Feed My Starving Children 

FMSC is a Christian nonprofit dedicated to seeing every child whole in body and spirit. FMSC works with food distribution partners that empower communities to move from relief to development. Join us for a volunteer packing session! Anyone over the age of 5 can participate

In April, A total of 42 boxes were packed resulting in 9,072 meals which will feed 25 children for a year. Thank God for those 25 children that will be fed! Volunteerism is currently way down at FMSC and the need is so great! When I think our group alone used to pack 42 boxes and now that is the total for the whole session! Kate gave the statistic of 6,200 kids die each DAY from undernutrition-and that is pre-Covid. Staggering! Join us for a packing session. Contact Linda Fass at fasslinda@yahoo.com.

Next packing session is Friday Sep 17, 9:00 - 10:30 AM Register Online


Lazarus House Meal Donations 

Lazarus House provides services to the homeless. On the third Friday of every month Immanuel provides meals to support this cause. Volunteers prepare Friday dinner and Saturday breakfast and lunch for our homeless neighbors at the Lazarus House Shelter in St. Charles, which serves families from all over the tri-city area.
