At YAIPak Outreach, everything starts with the extravagant love of Christ. God pursues each one of us to redefine our identity, restore our dignity, and remind us how deeply we are loved. With a focus on women, children and veterans, we are witnessing that power of extravagant love each day.
Our warehouse is located at 211 S. Second Street. We are open for donations and volunteers on Mondays 9am-12pm, Wednesdays 12pm-2pm and Thursdays 5pm-8pm.
YAIPak Outreach in the Community
OPERATION HONOR // It is a privilege to serve our heroes and their families. On February 2nd from 10:00am to 12:00pm we have the amazing opportunity to partner with those who have a passion to make sure our military and their families have the best.
An event presented by The Maynard Family, LifePoint Church, F&M Bank, ECHO Power Engineering, Feed the Children, and Tyson.
"Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy." - Winston Churchill
How You Can Help
What a start to the year this has been! We have experienced everything from tornadoes to snow storms.
During the snow storm our team headed out to ensure that our friends in the encampments had all they needed to survive the brutally cold elements. At this time we are accepting NEW COLD WEATHER gear to be able to bring to our friends to make the temps a little more bearable...
Thermal underwear/long johns
Cold weather sleeping bags (30º)
1lb green propane tanks
Portable single eyed burner
3 to 4 man tents

Your Generosity at Work
Where do you go after domestic violence or a horrible relationship coming to an end? What do you do if you find yourself in a place with nothing but the clothes on your back? No plan for what’s next…just the next step forward…
We hear of these situations a lot more than we wish too. Our hearts hurt for the families facing the trauma leaving everything they have behind.
As we pack, we imagine what the children may have already had that needs replacement. We imagine what they may like now in this next chapter.
We can only imagine the heartache that comes with those emails/phone calls reaching out to us for help. We pray that we can bring Hope where things seem hopeless.
Because of your generosity, during the trauma they face, this family will have a little more comfort as they take things step by step…FORWARD!
