Just Serve

“I want to help, but what can I do?”

Are you looking for a way to serve in your community, but you don’t know where you are needed? Maybe you want to help, but don’t want to be exposed in the community during the pandemic. Or you are longing to be with people again after months in shut down. There are plenty of ways to serve your neighbors safely.

Just Serve can help. Visit JustServe.org, enter your city or zip code, and a host of volunteer opportunities will appear. Choose to volunteer for a few hours a month, or up to as many days and as many hours as you wish.

Lisa Thomas, a JustServe Specialist in West Tennessee is passionate about the value of service, especially at times like what we are living through right now. “What can we do that is positive?” she asks. “Bring the community together in service. When everybody from all walks of life has an opportunity to serve together for a common good, all their differences go out the window.”

If you are an organization looking for volunteers, connect with Just Serve to have your needs listed. A nonprofit recently commented, “we had four volunteers come to us through Just Serve, and they were just the people we needed at exactly the right time. Thank you!”

Your hands, your heart, your service can help heal lives and communities.

For most of us, the homeless population in our cities is unseen, quiet, taking a back seat to more pressing problems that show up in daily headlines – education, politics, health care. But in 1953, Dr. Charles Fuller, a gospel preacher leading a revival in Nashville saw too many homeless people in the city. He returned the honorarium he received for speaking and asked that it be used to establish a place where the homeless could seek shelter, food, and hope.
