Hands are the tools God uses to put His love into action. Hands turn an idea into a reality and unleash God’s compassion in tangible ways to those who need it most.

When we join hands for a common good, there’s no limit to what God can accomplish in our broken world.





  • Celebration of Hope - Seed Packing

    Pack Seeds, Save Lives

    May 2 and 3 – multiple shifts available

    Help us fill 100,000 vegetable seed packs for family gardens in El Salvador and Zambia. Each seed pack can grow up to 1,000 pounds of vegetables, providing families with fresh food and a source of income generated from surplus produce sales. Willow Crystal Lake partners with local churches that distribute the seed packs to those in greatest need.

    Seed packing is a fun, meaningful activity that family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers can enjoy together. Each volunteer shift is just two hours long, and children over the age of five are welcome to serve alongside a parent.
