Volunteer Opportunities

  • Join us as we journey to Chiapas, Mexico and Mwandi Mission, Zambia, in June 2022, and possibly other locations (Rwanda and Alabama Black Belt in July 2022). Deadline for initial application (no deposit required) is Oct. 31, however, there is still time to let us know your intentions to travel with us.

  • Assist 50 Afghan refugees who will begin making their way to Birmingham on Nov. 15. Inspiritus, a Lutheran-affiliated refugee resettlement agency has recently opened an office in Birmingham. They will assist in resettling the refugees and are seeking donations and volunteers. The easiest, fastest way we can help is to purchase items from their Amazon wishlist and have items shipped directly to their office (the Lutheran church on Valleydale Road).

  • First Light Dinner

    Provide and serve dinner for the women and children staying at First Light each night the weeks of Jan. 31-Feb. 5, April 18-24, and June 20-26. Great activity for a family or group! Sign-up link coming soon!

  • We're helping Highlands UMC to provide 50 sacked lunches every Tuesday for the homeless.

  • Help us to continue refilling our Blessing Boxes and Food Pantry. Although the Food Pantry is closed to visitors due to Covid-19, food donations are being accepted. Donations can be dropped off or sent via a delivery service Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm to IPC Community Ministries' entrance on 31st Street South, up from the covered walkway. Please call Lisa at 205 933-3725 and let her know when you plan to arrive and she will meet you or your delivery service at the entrance to bring the food inside.

    Please consider making a monetary gift to assist IPC Social Services with the larger vouchers and with our utility, rent and medical assistance program. Here are some examples of how we are using these funds during this COVID-19 crisis:
    * A gift of $45 to IPC Social Services will purchase a voucher to feed a family of four for a week to ten days, providing them with two boxes of food from City Meats in Woodlawn: a box of canned, boxed and dry goods and a box of frozen meat, vegetables, and fresh dairy, eggs and bread;
    * A gift of $20 will help families purchase essential items they are not allowed to buy using their food stamps, such as diapers, wipes, toilet paper, paper towels and cleaning supplies;
    * A gift of $30 will buy a gasoline card to help those still working during this crisis get to their employment;
    * A gift of any size, pooled with other gifts, can assist people in paying utility bills, rent, and in purchasing prescription medications and other needed medical equipment.
