Annual Outreach Programs
Christmas Family Outreach - There is no better way to live the true meaning of Christmas than to help those in need at this time of year. It takes an army of volunteers to pull off one of the most gratifying events held in Columbus, Ohio each year; the giving away of 1,100 Christmas food baskets and 2,500 brand new toys to children and families in need. We need volunteers to help us with Outreach preparations Dec 4th-17th (weekdays). This year the CFO will be held December 15th, 2015 at Rhema Christian Center (2100 Agler Rd. Columbus, OH 43229,
Toys For Joy – Victory Ministries annual toy drive has a goal this year to collect 2,500 brand new toys. With the help of our main sponsor, LifeWay Christian Stores and other supporters, we believe we can reach our goal and bring a smile to the faces of hundreds of needy children (0-12 years of age). Toy collections begin on November 9th and end December 11th, 2015. If you would like to collect or donate toys for distribution at the Christmas Family Outreach, please email us.
Volunteer OpportunitiesVolunteers are the backbone of this ministry. It takes thousands of volunteer hours each year to deliver our services in a specialized and compassionate way. Giving back to those in need is the language of kindness.
Daily at Victory Ministries – 10 am to 4 pm, weekdays. Bag groceries, sort & distribute clothing, food pick-ups, sign-in, etc. Can you volunteer one afternoon a month? We can use you to assist needy families – excellent for homeschoolers and college students.
Operation Pure Religion – One Saturday morning each month packing groceries for delivery to elderly individuals on a fixed-income, shut-ins and the handicapped. This is an ideal ministry opportunity for a church small group; call our office to sign up.
Special Projects – Sorting clothing, cleaning, maintenance of the facility, painting, etc. Special projects are arranged as requested for small groups on Thursday evenings or weekends.
Free Medical Clinic – Second Thursday of each month from 5:30-8:00 p.m. We are in need of medical professionals and others who can volunteer as prayer partners, administration, hospitality, etc. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
Literacy NOW Reading Buddies– Victory Ministries is excited to begin its eighth year of providing weekly reading help to approximately forty students at Cassady Alternative Elementary School in Columbus, Ohio. Each year, tutors donate over 1,000 hours of reading help through this program. We need volunteers willing to commit one lunch hour each week (Tues, Wed or Thurs) to serve as a Reading Buddy to the same student beginning in October and ending in May 2016. Contact email@example.com if interested in this exciting, life-changing ministry. We can train you to make a difference in the life of a child - no special background or experience needed.
Bag Hunger Food Drives - 1 in 6 children face hunger everyday in Ohio. We can change that! By holding a food drive once a year, a local church can address hunger in a very practical way. Bag Hunger grocery bags, shopping lists, & signage are available though our office. Contact us to schedule a Bag Hunger food drive.
