Local Outreach in the Pandemic

In the midst of a pandemic, global human rights protests, natural disasters, and an increasingly polarized world, it can be easy to question our own ability to make a difference. And yet from the very beginning of the faith, Christians have found themselves at the heart of movements of justice and humanitarian aid, assisting the most marginalized and vulnerable to find safety, comfort, and peace. In these difficult times, we believe that Christ is still at work and that He wants to use His people to meet the deep needs of a hurting and broken world.

While we’re unable to meet face-to-face in ways we’re used to, there’s more need than ever to connect with those who need help most. We want to help you do that.

On Campus Options

For those on-campus, or for volunteers who need to be especially sensitive to social-distancing demands, we have distance programs set-up to assist isolated seniors, new refugees, and local at-risk youth. If you have other ideas of distance opportunities, please let us know!

Off Campus Options

For those who are off-campus, across the US and Canada, we’d love to help you find ways to volunteer in your local community. We have leaders ready to help connect you with food banks, meal programs, shelters, disability services, senior care, and other organizations doing critical work in your own city. Right now most local non-profits are dealing with increased needs in the community alongside fewer available volunteers. We want to help support these organizations with local volunteers who will keep safety as a top priority alongside their commitment to service.

Please reach out to outreach@twu.ca if you’re interested in volunteering in any capacity. We’d love to help.
