Volunteer work typically includes inspecting, sorting or packaging food so that it can be distributed to community food pantries. This has a direct impact on feeding people in our community!

We are excited to do God’s work with our hands right here in Will County. New Life volunteers as a group from time to time but there is always an opportunity to volunteer as an individual as well.

*Not currently available due to COVID For the past 20 years, we have provided a place for youth to receive help. These students between 2nd - 8th grade not only receive academic help but in many cases positive encouragement. Tutoring is typically offered on Tuesdays from 7:00-8:00 pm and Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30 pm. There is always a need for more tutors to ensure that there are no students left on the wait list.
In partnership with the United Way of Will County, our location provides free diapers and wipes for families in need. Volunteers can help bundle diapers, serve families on Sunday nights when Depot is open or donate products to help meet the need.
