Volunteer for Humanitarian Projects

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.

Upcoming Humanitarian Volunteer Projects

All projects are located at the Unto Global Logistics Center in Lancaster, PA, unless otherwise noted.

Registration will open approximately 6 weeks before the event. For more information or questions about an event please send an email to David.Parsons@unto.com. If the registration is full you may contact us to request additional volunteer spots for an event.

Upcoming Humanitarian Projects

Thank you for your desire to show the kindness of Jesus to people in the toughest places through humanitarian aid and for your commitment to serve at the Unto Global Logistics Center (GLC).

In light of the worldwide concerns about COVID-19 our parent organization, Cru®, has restricted volunteer events until further notice. As a result of these restrictions, we are saddened to inform you that the October Mission Packing Project has been canceled and weekly opportunities have been postponed. We are developing a plan for small group opportunities starting in October. Please check this page for updates.

Despite these unexpected changes we still have aid shipments heading to tough places, and this will continue to the extent we are able so we can serve our field partners who continue to minister to people in need.

Thank you for your many hours of service that have allowed us to be ready to provide critical items at a moment’s notice — all thanks to thousands of volunteers just like you.

In this unprecedented time, may you sense the Lord’s peace and comfort. We look forward to serving with you soon!
