We are so grateful for all of our volunteers, who we consider members of our village. Here are some of the opportunities we currently have available for volunteering.

Winter Blast: We are part of the beverage charity program through the Winter Blast Festival. We staff a beverage booth at the event, and receive 12% of the proceeds from that booth. We are also able to distribute our marketing materials, to let the community know we are always in need of adoptive families.
Support a Child’s Birthday or Christmas: We have a gift program that provides gifts for unmatched foster children who are waiting for their forever family. If you or a group you are involved with is interested in becoming a part of this special program, please let us know!
Arts, Beats, and Eats: This festival takes place Friday-Monday of Labor Day Weekend! We staff a beverage booth at the event, and receive 12% of the proceeds from that booth. We are also able to distribute our marketing materials, to let the community know we are always in need of adoptive families. We are always looking for LOTS of volunteers to help with this one. More information to come as we get closer.
The Forever Home Run began in 2015 as a partnership between Lutheran Adoption Service and Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church to raise awareness and funding to support foster children waiting for their forever families. The event normally takes place at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church, but this year, our primary focus is the safety of our families and the community at large. This is why the 2020 Forever Home Run will be 100% virtual. Please join us in 2020 for a fun virtual event that really does make a difference in the lives of children and their forever families.

Become a CrowdRise Advocate: LAS is contracted by the state to provide adoption services. Our contract does not include many of the supportive services we want to provide our very deserving children and families. We do a lot of outside fundraising to help us provide some of these services. You can join our CrowdRise Campaign and get the word out to family and friends to help support this work. Please use this link to join us on CrowdRise , or Donate Here to learn more about how we use the money we are so generously given.
Host an information session: You provide the group, we will provide the education and discussion. We are happy to come to churches, businesses, community groups etc. We are always looking for new adoptive families, and willing, creative groups that want to help further our mission!
