Disaster Response Volunteers
Volunteers play an essential role in the work of Matthew 25: Ministries. The donated goods we receive must be sorted, counted, packaged, and put on pallets ready for shipment to various parts of the world.
In addition to assisting with processing these goods in our warehouse, Matthew 25 also welcomes volunteers to assist with our on-ground Disaster Response operations. Matthew 25: Ministries’ focus during disasters is typically on moving large amounts of critically needed aid into the affected area. When our Disaster Response Team deploys, we utilize a fleet of specialty vehicles to distribute initial loads of aid and set up distribution channels through partner organizations for future shipments. Volunteers help our Disaster Response Team with product distribution, folding laundry, food preparation and more. Any volunteers interested should be in good health and physical condition as many tasks will require some level of manual labor. Volunteers will be responsible for their own lodging, transportation, and meals. Disaster Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age or older. Any volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a legal guardian.
