Host a Food Drive
We serve more than 22,000 meals a year. Here’s how to host a food drive.
Thrift Store Sorters
Our Thrift Store is blessed with many donations. If you are a person who enjoys treasure hunting, sorting items at our Thrift Store may be for you. The store is located at 5135 Hixson Pike, Hixson TN and operates from 9 AM to 8 PM, Monday through Saturday. You can sign up as an individual, or as part of a group (no more than a dozen in a group, please.)
Sign up here for the THRIFT STORE.
Prepare a meal for one of our campus homes. This is a great way to spend time with our kids. The houseparents are thankful to have a break from preparing meals and the kids love to eat! Thursday nights are best, plan on arriving at 6:00 PM and spending about an hour. Our homes can accommodate a group of up to twelve people.
Sign up here to make DINNER.
Quarterly Home Clean Up
Help the kids with deep cleaning projects, such as washing windows and cleaning the pantry. A great activity for groups of two to 12. Sign up here for HOME CLEAN-UP.
Does your group enjoy sharing the Word of God? Consider sharing a Bible Study with our kids. We ask for a commitment of once or twice a month. The number of months is your choice.
Sign up here to provide a HOME BIBLE STUDY.
Many of our children arrive at Bethel a year or more behind in their studies due to life crises and challenges. All you need is a heart for teaching and at least a high school education. A background check is required as part of our commitment to child safety. Tutoring hours are 3:30-5:00 pm, Monday through Thursday.
Sign up here for TUTORING.
Our agency offers internship opportunities in social work, marketing, finance and human resources. To qualify for a social work internship you must be a college student taking course work toward a degree in social work. We offer both 40 hour and 400 hour internships.
Sign up here to apply for an INTERNSHIP.
Be a Sponsor Parent
Children at Bethel spend occasional weekends and holiday school breaks visiting with relatives, however, not every child has a place to go. In those situations, a sponsor parent provides a home the child can visit during occasional weekends and holiday school breaks. For child safety, fingerprinting and a background check are required. Sign up here for SPONSOR.
Thrift Store Driver Assistant
These drivers collect donated goods in the Chattanooga area, including furniture, clothing, household items and electronics. Proceeds from the Thrift Store help fund the ministry of Bethel Bible Village. Sign up here for THRIFT STORE DRIVER ASSISTANT.
Summer Mowing Help
With 64 acres to maintain, we need volunteers who can help mow our grass on riding mowers/tractors. Mowing day is Monday.
Sign up here for SUMMER MOWING.
This is a fun group and a nice way to meet new friends! We spend four hours stuffing envelopes with letters to our donors, once each quarter.
Sign up here for LETTER STUFFING.
