Do you have a desire to help improve the lives of people living in the toughest places on earth? Through humanitarian projects, Unto provides volunteer opportunities for you, your family, team, or group to make a difference. When you volunteer for a humanitarian project, you can have an impact on the life of a refugee, orphan, or poverty-stricken family. Not only will their lives be changed, but yours will too!

Most volunteer opportunities are at our Global Logistics Center.

The GLC hosts two weekly volunteer projects. Walk-ins are welcome. If you plan to attend with a group of 10 or more, please call the logistics center in advance at 717-285-4220.

  • LuoPad cutting, tracing, and sewing — Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • Blanket quilting and sewing — Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
