Volunteers make a HUGE difference at Elim, especially when they give their time toward campus improvement projects during the summer! It is amazing what we have already seen accomplished when people get a heart for one of these projects. Sometimes whole churches or businesses get involved. Possibly your church could underwrite a construction worker you know to come help us for a week. If you’re an alumnus, you could coordinate with others from your class to come work on campus for a few days together and enjoy a reunion at the same time (contact campuslife@elim.edu for reunion ideas).

Any help can make a huge difference—whether you have a specific skill like carpentry, masonry, plumbing or HVAC…or if you’re just willing to pick up a paint brush or serve wherever needed. Some volunteers come for a few hours, others for a day or a week. Some come alone, while others organize a team to work together. For us, it is like the cavalry showing up to save the day—we are so humbled and grateful. 

All workers who come to volunteer their time will be housed and fed on campus at no cost. You can also participate in the weekly summer chapel services and enjoy the campus during the beautiful upstate NY summer. 

If you would be willing to come yourself or help organize a team to volunteer, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Jack Thorpe at jackthorpe@elim.edu or 585-694-6161. Hope to see you this summer!
