Make a Difference

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." — Helen Keller

Shively Area Ministries' volunteers are an integral part of our ministry. Our dedicated volunteers enable SAM to fulfill our mission in the Spirit of Christ and assist our clients in the most cost-effective manner. We could not serve the Shively community without them!

Whether you enjoy working behind the scenes or one-on-one with those in need, we have an important role you can fill. Volunteers come from all walks of life and backgrounds. We believe that no contribution is too small, and everyone can make a difference! 

We have ongoing needs for volunteers, as well as occasional special project needs, so if you enjoy answering phones, doing light data entry, stocking food pantry shelves, driving meals to the elderly or simply serving others, we have the perfect opportunity for you.
