Help ship lifesaving supplies around the world
You can play a vital role in sending people around the world the help they need. World Help receives more than 1 million pieces of donated clothing, medical equipment, packages of food, and more each year. But these lifesaving supplies must be counted, sorted, and packed in our distribution center in Lynchburg, Virginia, before they can be shipped to the people who are waiting for them. That’s why volunteers like you are essential!
On average, every hour you volunteer helps ship $2,326.89 worth of aid and impacts 81 people!
As a volunteer, you’ll help with tasks such as:
- Sorting and counting clothes and shoes by size and type
- Conditioning and testing medical equipment
- Assembling hygiene and emergency kits
- Packaging and labeling boxes of relief supplies
- Loading and unloading trucks

“It’s a very worthwhile project, and it’s very much needed. There’s a lot involved, and many hands make light work.”
“I appreciate being a small piece of the puzzle in making a difference.”
“It’s something close to home that has a global impact … I would do it again in a heartbeat.”
