From participants → to volunteers. January 2022

By February 10, 2022Recent News2 min read

Being a part of Lubbock Impact for almost a year now, I have had the privilege of meeting and serving alongside countless volunteers, each of them giving time and resources that would ultimately change the course of a Lubbock Impact participant’s life. What a blessing to behold!


Over the last several weeks, many of our Lubbock Impact participants have come to me to ask, “Becky, how can I help?” to which I always reply, “Serve alongside me!” And guess what? They’ve taken me up on the invitation.


Two weeks ago, we were preparing for a drive-thru meal and several volunteers canceled late because of sickness. That left just seven of us to put together take-out boxes and get them outside for pickup. In the whirlwind of activity, a husband and wife appeared asking if they could help. They had been sitting in the Coffee Hall waiting to pick up their new glasses from the Eye Clinic. They saw the need and jumped right in. And we were very thankful they did!


Last week, a man stopped by for a food voucher and asked if he could start volunteering. And on Thursday, he arrived to help sort clothes. As a veteran and former minister who is in a place of recovery, he told me, “My heart longs to serve again.” Well, we gladly welcomed him into our family.


Are you looking for a family of service, too? There’s always a place for you at Lubbock Impact! Come and join us!


“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.” – Luke 10:27


Two specific needs we have right now are Laundry Detergent Pods and 20 child-sized aprons.


We are also looking for volunteer groups that would be interested in helping with the renovation of the clothing closets during Spring Break (March 10 – 19). No experience required! Please email for more information. .


This month we want to highlight the two sponsors of the Kingsgate Shopping Center Annual Coat Drive, GRACO Real Estate Development and Tide Cleaners!


Kingsgate shoppers dropped off over 750 coats to the drop boxes and Tide Cleaners cleaned them before they were delivered to us at Lubbock Impact.


We were able to give coats to our Lubbock Impact participants before sharing the rest with our community partners.


Communities in Schools, St. Benedict’s, Hope Shalom, and Greenlawn Church of Christ were some of the ministries who stepped in to spread the warmth to those in need!
