Ukraine Orphan Outreach (UOO) is excited to be bringing 10 orphans this summer. We are looking forward to the exciting ways that our volunteers can become connected and involved.
Tentative camp dates are July 26 – August 16th (subject to change)
We have many levels of involvement, from supplying snacks, buying clothing, chaperoning an event, sponsoring an event, provide supplies, meals and much more.
We are also looking to fill some roles to help organize different areas of camp. We are looking for coordinators who will be responsible for planning and execution of specific areas. The coordinators are asked to enlist other volunteers and not feel like they have to go it alone. Below is our list of where we need help. If you have interest in being the coordinator or to help in a certain area, please let us know so we can get you plugged in. If you want more information as to the scope of the below list, email Kris at firstname.lastname@example.org Remember that just because there is a name by the list below doesn’t mean we have it “covered”, every lead coordinator needs your help, so pick something you think you might enjoy doing!

We are in the planning process for Camp 2011. Tentative dates are July 26 – August 16th. Our goal is to advocate for the older orphans of Ukraine and be able to give them an opportunity to experience life outside of the orphanage. We are looking for volunteers to help with camp, from donations of clothing, snacks, field trips, crafts or just spending time with the children. We promise that your life will be forever changed when you get involved helping the least of these.
