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. 2nd Street. We are open for donations and volunteers on Mondays from 9am to 12pm, Wednesdays from 12 to 2pm, and Thursdays from 5 to 8pm.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY YAIPAK OUTREACH
On May 26th YAIPak Outreach, our team, and our volunteers gathered to serve others while celebrating our 6th birthday!! From Purses in the trunk of a car and a house overflowing, to miracles in Paradise, we have seen so much happen in 6 short years. So many more things than we could ever imagine. Everything that started with an act of obedience. Listening to a still small voice in the midst of a chaotic world…a voice pointing out your purpose.
We are beyond excited about the future. Overflowing with gratitude from where we came. And humbled, blessed, and thankful for a community who has partnered and grown with us. It’s been a journey for the record books and the Lord isn’t done yet. Thank you for allowing us the privilege to serve an extraordinary community. We love you and can’t wait to share all the things about to happen.
How You Can Help
We are so grateful for all of you who continue to partner with us to ensure we have all the supplies necessary to love others well.

JAKE & RACHAEL BULLOCK
Glen and Florence took the time to answer some of our questions. They are amazing people who have invited other amazing people to serve with them here at YAIPak Outreach. We love when people get to serve with those they love.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN VOLUNTEERING WITH YAIPAK OUTREACH?
"We have served with YAIPak Outreach for almost 6 months."
HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT YAIPAK OUTREACH?
"We were looking for a place to volunteer together after moving here almost 2 years ago. We finally felt settled enough and began our search. We had heard about YAIPak Outreach through our church and one of the team members that works there."
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER WITH YAIPAK OUTREACH?
"We saw advertisement and posts about the annual 'Be the Hope' banquet. We decided it would be fun to get some tickets with friends and enjoy the night. We heard about all the projects YAIPak focused on and decided to dive a little deeper and visit the webpage to see how we could get involved."
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OF BEING AT THE WAREHOUSE?
"We always feels so loved and appreciated when we are there. The team and other volunteers are fun to be around and we know we get to impact our community. It's turned into it's own little small group for our Monday serve time."
WHAT WOULD YOU TELL SOMEONE WANTING TO JUMP INTO VOLUNTEERING?
"You won't regret it once you know the timing is right. And if you want to make it better invite your friends like us! We were so excited about serving and sharing the mission of YAIPak with our neighbors and it turned out that they wanted to come join us as well. Everyone can do something...even if it's just sharing the opportunity."
Your Generosity at Work
Because of your continued generosity, Project Rebuild Hope is still making a huge impact! Recently we were able to load up our friends in Waverly, TN for the 3rd time with enough resources to aid in rebuilding over 350 family homes.
After the town was decimated in August of 2021 by a flood, our team was the first on the ground to help clothe the community and set up distribution sites with Compassion Church. Since that devastating time, we have been able to grow with the community and have so many beautiful and fruitful relationships.
Our goal with Project Rebuild Hope is to be present through each phase of disaster relief: Rescue, Recovery, and Rebuilding. We do not desire only to help in the "emergency" phase...we are committed to see families restored in their homes with the supplies they need to get to that point. Our desire is to Be The Hope!
