Looking for a volunteer opportunity this holiday season?

ChristmasWant to make a different in somebody’s life this holiday season? This Thanksgiving and Christmas, consider giving a gift that will make a real impact: volunteer!

If you thought that Christian service meant committing to years of overseas mission work, think again! ChristianVolunteering.org is a new site that can put you in touch with over 1,000 ministries and more than 2,000 volunteer and short-term missions opportunities. With so many opportunities, there’s almost certainly a niche that matches your skills and interests. Here’s just a few of the ways you can serve this holiday season:

  • Helping serve Thanksgiving dinner to the homeless
  • Helping wrap Christmas gifts for homeless children
  • Spending Thanksgiving or Christmas with low-income elders without families
  • Sorting and bagging food to give to low-income families
  • Volunteering at a Christmas party for homeless children

Just head on over and search for opportunities in your local area. In addition to providing opportunities for people to volunteer in person, ChristianVolunteering.org also provides virtual volunteer opportunities that let you volunteer from home by providing services at a distance. This might mean helping develop a website for a missionary organization in China, doing grant writing for a Christian school in Korea, or providing long-distance assistance to a homeless shelter or ministry in the U.S.

If you feel called to volunteer this holiday season, don’t be intimidated by the thought of traveling overseas or becoming a lifelong missionary—there’s plenty you can do right where God has placed you, and ChristianVolunteering.org is a great way to get involved.
