A FREE Great Gathering!

Free Great Gathering!!

Here is your chance to show your child how wonderful it is to donate your time volunteering!

The work of Matthew 25: Ministries helps the poorest of the poor and disaster victims throughout the United States and around the world.

Volunteers play an essential role in the work of Matthew 25: Ministries. The donated goods must be sorted, counted, packaged, and put on pallets ready for shipment to various parts of the world.

A morning or afternoon’s work will typically produce enough finished materials to help hundreds of people in need in the U.S. and around the world.

You will be placed and trained on a specific work station when you arrive, based on greatest need and availability of products. Tasks are simple and easy-to-learn, and many can be adapted to fit a variety of ability levels.
