Volunteers will serve as an important step in the journey for Lutheran World Relief supplies. They are helping to get quilts and medical kits from families and congregations in Colorado to the holding space at the Ogden House. From there these relief supplies will be sent to the warehouse from which they will then be distributed around the world to communities and families who need them!
WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?
Project Helping volunteers will help transfer these donations to a storage space at Urban Servant Corps.
Through the act of volunteering, you are actively investing in your community while also improving your mental wellness!

Volunteering can also give us a deep sense of happiness, both immediately and long-term.

This is just some of the science that supports our mission and outlines why it’s so beneficial to do good things for others. We call that practicing kindfulness. #DoGoodFeelGood
Does this event require special skills?
Volunteers should be able to lift boxes of up to 50lbs. We are happy to accommodate volunteers who cannot lift, as we can use help with greeting and help record box numbers, but most volunteers in a group should be able to lift. We also consider willingness to help others a very special skill, but you’re reading this, so you already have that one!
Are there age requirements for volunteering?
All volunteers must be at least 10 years old to participate in this opportunity.
