Meet The Need is designed for people like you who are ready to find more meaning and purpose in their lives by giving back. Every one of us has something to offer to those in need, whether it’s something we own or something we can do.
Giving money to a worthy cause is great, but Meet The Need is about personal contact, not writing a check. It’s about carving out a little time to do simple acts of service for others. Even the smallest gestures can have a lasting impact on that person’s life. As the Bible says, “Dear Children, let us stop just saying we love each other; let us really show it by our actions.” (1 John 3:18) That’s why Meet The Need exists…to let you know about countless opportunities to serve others through giving of your time, energy and belongings. But there are many uncertainties that keep people from moving beyond donating money:
- What do I have to offer?
- Who needs what I have to offer
- What kind of difference can I really make?
- I’m just too busy
- Whatever spare time I have, I need to spend with my family
Meet The Need is designed with you in mind. There are so many easy, practical ways to reach out to others in our database. There are so many unknown and unmet needs in your community and even across the world. Search Meet The Need for the types of needs that fit your interests and skills best – whether it’s donating used items to a local family, volunteering to work with a local charity on a weekend, or even helping feed the hungry in Africa – and you can do most of them with friends or members of your family!
Remember, you CAN make a difference! You have been given a unique set of skills and abilities that God wants you to use to serve your fellow man. …and there’s no greater feeling than making someone else’s life a little better!
