Volunteer Opportunities


We dedicate a lot of time to build projects for Gather Our Children Home or other projects that help strengthen communities. When we have a special build project, we try to get as many volunteers to assist as it takes many hands to make easier work! We are working towards sustainable building projects, partnering with organizations dedicated to this work.


One of our principal support services is the assembling of backpacks filled with hygiene supplies, school supplies, or food kits. We have held assembly events for these packs as there are often 400+ kits handed out to various communities. We work with other organizations to determine where the packs will go and how many are needed for an assembly event.


We are lucky to be joined by fellow organizations and corporations that volunteer their time, resources, or materials to assist us onsite or from afar. If you have a great partnering idea, please let us know. In the past, we have made trips with Park Burger, Persolvent, and Matter. Park Burger’s amazing owners brought their burger buggy along for a 400-burger cookout!
