Our Partners in Service

Bishop Seabury Academy partners with many Lawrence-area social service agencies to provide opportunities for students, faculty and staff to serve the larger Lawrence community.  Relationships are managed by the Community Service Director, who acts as a liason for students and agencies trying to connect, but most students will seek service opportunities on their own.

The following pages list a short description of the agency, contact information for those looking to connect, and any other relevent, topical information (upcoming events, etc.)

Trinity Interfaith Food Pantry

Lawrence Community Shelter (LCS) - volunteer opportunities, from helping cook a meal in the kitchen or mentoring our younger guests to teaching a financial literacy class or facilitating a workshop on the weekends.

100 Good Women: www.100goodwomen.org - Work with a local non-profit called 100 Good Women. We fill in where traditional services end. Check us out at www.100goodwomen.org. We help with gas cards for the unemployed getting to interviews, or the first 2 weeks of a new job before you get paid. We send out to our "tree" with requests of furniture for individuals and families moving on from Lawrence Community Shelter or Willow into their own place. We buy mattresses for children making these moves. The requests are wide and varied, but we do what we can to help out.
