Do you have a desire to get involved in something bigger than yourself? GAiN provides opportunities for you and your family to make a difference through humanitarian projects. We offer events such as seed and meal packing, quilt-making and LuoPad sewing sessions, and our bi-annual Mission Packing Projects at the GAiN Logistics Center (GLC) in Pennsylvania. Make an impact on the life of a refugee, orphan, or poverty-stricken family by volunteering for a humanitarian project. Not only will their lives be changed, but yours will, too!

Engage Your Community

Assemble CarePacks

Without school supplies, many children around the world cannot enter the door of a school. Education is vital for preparing them for a rise out of poverty. When you give a CarePack you invest in future doctors, teachers, or pastors. You can help by collecting items to provide CarePacks for a classroom or school.

Collect Blankets

GAiN uses blankets to meet physical needs of those facing harsh winters, and as an opening to tell people about God’s love. Help us collect blankets for people in need worldwide. We accept new or gently used, clean blankets. Include a $7 financial donation with each blanket to help get them into the hands of people who need them.

Help Make LuoPads

Without access to feminine hygiene supplies, women in developing countries can’t leave their homes, and some even find themselves shunned during this sensitive time. Young girls can miss 20 percent of the school year! LuoPads can restore their dignity by helping them reclaim control of their lives and take charge of their health. It also gives our ministry partners the opportunity to tell these vulnerable women that Jesus loves and values them. Sew LuoPads or if you don’t sew, collect used flannel sheets and terry cloth towels for volunteers who sew LuoPads at the GAiN Logistics Center.
