What Is An Impact Mission?
Impact Missions improve the quality of life for underserved children and those living in poverty around the world by providing aid to community organizations in need of a helping hand.
These annual volunteer centered projects provide support to orphanages, schools, and shelters by raising funds, donating goods, and physically showing up to improve critical facilities.
While our projects can be domestic or abroad, often Impact Missions work hand-in-hand with our annual Medical Mission Teams in places like Peru, Ethiopia, and in Guatemala.
