Volunteering doesn’t always seem very exciting to the average participant. When you volunteer your time at FH, you’re playing a key role in ending extreme poverty. The mission of Food for the Hungry (FH) is highly dependent on our groups of faithful volunteers. We need dedicated individuals of all skill levels to help us in a variety of capacities. Here are three ways you can volunteer at FH.
On-site in Phoenix
We rely on our volunteer groups to help us keep child sponsors connected to the transformational work that FH does all over the world. The dedication of our volunteers is life-changing for vulnerable children. Many of our volunteers find that giving their time to FH allows them to be a part of global missions without ever leaving their city.
Most of our volunteer opportunities are primarily in the production and communications department. These volunteers require attention to detail as we service over 100,000 child sponsors through assembling child sponsorship packets, stuffing envelopes, and completing other administrative tasks. Volunteering with FH on-site gives each participant the opportunity to visit the Phoenix office and learn a bit about the child sponsorship work we do. The opportunity to perform these duties can be short-term or long-term.
You might be interested in helping to end extreme poverty, but you might not live in Phoenix. That’s okay! FH partners with different artists around the nation for help with child sponsorship. We need volunteers to help at the concerts and events while artists are on tour visiting your city. Volunteers will be asked to do things like answer questions or hand out sponsorship packets. See if a tour is coming near you and learn about how to help at FH’s tours page.
Group Volunteer Projects
FH welcomes small or large groups. That might include your friends or even members of your church. Our Phoenix office can hold up to 60 members at a time! FH can really use bigger groups when we have a large amount letters that we need stuffed and sent out in a shorter time frame. Projects like these include the Christmas cards children send to their sponsors! Smaller groups are welcome as well! Big or small groups can really make an impact during the busy seasons.
