Prison Pack Serving Opportunities

Willow Creek's Prison & Jail Ministry helps thousands of incarcerated people and their families find hope behind—and beyond—bars. Each December, all eight Willow Creek locations join together in one goal: To bring hope by assembling Christmas gifts and delivering them to every incarcerated person in the state of Illinois. 

Save the Date

Prison Pack Weekend is December 1 & 2. Bring family and friends to help assemble more than 70,000 gifts that will be sent to inmates across Illinois and to Angola prison.

Want to help behind the scenes? A fantastic team of volunteers helps prepare for Prison Pack weekend by building boxes and staging supplies. Consider joining this team—leading up to the weekend, or during the weekend—to help make prison packs a success. Click a time below to sign up to serve!
