Often the first on the ground and the last to leave, Operation Blessing volunteers are there for the suffering whenever and wherever disasters strike the United States. As an OB volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to bless those facing devastation and loss.

When you volunteer with Operation Blessing, you’ll enjoy free food, as well as all the tools, supplies and first-class volunteer coordination that you need to make the most of your time on the ground. *Note: Due to COVID-19, we cannot provide lodging at this time.

 

I WANT TO HELP

Volunteer

Would you or someone you know like to volunteer? You have a heart to serve and Operation Blessing takes care of the details so that you can show God’s love to those in the midst of crisis. When major hurricanes, tornadoes and other devastating storms strike the U.S., volunteers become a key component of Operation Blessing’s disaster relief efforts. From serving hot meals and handing out bags of relief to helping residents salvage precious belongings and aiding in debris removal and cleanup, OB volunteers are critical to bringing relief in real time!
