8 ways to get involved with Buckner in 2016
1. Host a shoe drive.
Encourage your church, school, business or organization to collect shoes by signing up to host a shoe drive. Your shoe drive can take place anytime, anywhere! No matter where you live or what you do, the shoes you collect send children to school and protect them from life-threatening diseases. Join us in sharing the Gospel through a simple pair of shoes.

2. Go on a mission trip.
Have you always wanted to go on a mission trip but always find excuses not to go? Well, 2016 is your year. People who travel with Buckner help our global staff make a lasting impact in the communities they serve. That’s what makes us unique – even after you’re gone, seeds are being sewn, watered and grown by local staff who work in their communities year-round. Visit the trip calendar to apply for one of our open trips.
3. Support a foster or adoptive family in your church.
Being an adoptive or foster parent is a true ministry – and it’s an extremely difficult one. Parents often need a break or a night out together, so why not pitch in to watch the kids for a couple hours? Check out this blog post for more ideas.
4. Attend a special event in your area.
Special events are a great way to learn a little bit more about Buckner and how you can get involved on a deeper level. Check out the calendar to see what’s coming to your city!
5. Be a voice for vulnerable children.
By pledging monthly support to become a Buckner Voice Partner, you’re not only giving money, you’re giving hope and a voice to children in the United States and around the world who don’t have one.
6. Pray for fragile families served by Buckner.
7. College students:
Do something radical this summer. Be the hands and feet of Christ with Project Go, a month-long mission trip to serve children and families with Buckner in one of five countries. You’ll experience the life-changing hope from a new perspective and learn the importance of humbling yourself daily to the Lord’s plan. See where your summer can take you at buckner.org/projectgo!
