Every act of service matters.

When you partner with us, you help make a difference in the lives of children and families.


Many hands make for light work.

We have many opportunities for you to help. Some volunteers come individually and spend a few hours each month with us, some come for a week or weekend with their church group, and others drop by donations or share their talents with us once a year–and we need them all! There’s truly something for everyone.

Partner with us and help make a difference.

You can make a difference for children and families with your unique gifts and talents.

God calls us all to serve in many different ways. You may be unsure of how to help, which is why we partner with you to find the volunteer activity that fits you best and ensures your act of service, no matter how small, contributes to the success of our communities’ children and families.

Organize a Fundraiser or Host a Benefit

If you want to organize a fundraiser, no donation is too small. Whether it’s a community garage sale, spaghetti dinner, golf tournament, car wash, or bake sale, your group can help make a real difference by raising money. If you would like to host a benefit, you could encourage your office, business, or organization to host a party to benefit our children. This is especially great for holiday parties. We’re available to attend, speak, and bring Thornwell materials for display.

Organize a Supply Drive

Organize a collection drive for paper products or hygiene items, snacks and juice boxes, books, or movie night items for our children and families. Providing the basic necessities for our children and families is a priority. Gift cards, gas cards, school supplies, new underwear and socks, and non-perishable food are other great ideas for a supply drive.

Contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 864.938.2704 or sarah.bowers@thornwell.org to learn what items are of the greatest need at the time of your drive.

Come see what we’re doing for families by taking a virtual or in-person tour.
