Hands-on Activities

About the volunteering opportunity

GAiN aims to establish a worldwide logistics network for humanitarian aid and works closely with other humanitarian organizations, production companies and private individuals. In this way, GAiN can respond quickly to the needs of affected people in acute emergencies, organize the necessary relief supplies and transport them promptly and cost-effectively to the target areas on the European borders.

We sort and pre-pack the donated relief supplies together.

Your Tasks

If you want to spend your free time in a meaningful way or do some good at the end of the day, our packing and sorting events are just the thing for you. These take place every Monday afternoon, Thursday evening, Wednesday afternoon and every Tuesday morning.
Tasks include:

  • Sorting relief supplies
  • Filling school supplies into used satchels
  • Sorting sportswear
  • Packing relief packages

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity you don't need any German skills.

  • As we work together in a colorful team and everyone pitches in together, you should be open to new people.
  • As it's mainly about sorting and packing, you should bring a willingness for these tasks.
     

What to bring

A break snack, info about GAiN and good vibes will be provided. We look forward to meeting you and sorting the donations together with you,
