Help connect people working to overcome poverty!

Unbound receives and processes around 1.3 million pieces of mail from our sponsored friends at our headquarters in Kansas City every year! We typically process over 500,000 of those pieces of mail within the months of October – December. Whether it is just you or a group of people, we need your help! Volunteers at the Service Center help to match up the sponsors information with the handwritten letter or photo of the sponsored member and prepare the letters and photos to be mailed out. These cards, letters and photos are crucial pieces of our mission, connecting people all around the world, regardless of economic, cultural, geographical, and religious divides.

Our volunteer hours in the Service Center are from 8:00AM – 4:00PM, Monday – Friday at our headquarters in Kansas City. If this event does not work for you, and you would like to set up a different time to come in and volunteer, contact us at scvolunteer@unbound.org!
