At World Vision’s Pittsburgh Global Distribution Center for gifts-in-kind (GIK), donated products are sorted, processed, and prepared for domestic and international distribution. Since 1990, World Vision’s GIK program has distributed high-quality donations valued at $3.0 billion, including medical supplies, clothes and shoes, school supplies, personal care products, and other needed items.
World Vision Pittsburgh offers a volunteer experience for any size group (ages 10 and older). Opportunities are available for schools, churches, businesses, small groups, and families looking for service day or team-building activities. Sign up for one day or on a recurring basis. At World Vision Pittsburgh, we strive to deliver the highest quality product to the field by providing detailed inventory and sorts. It is only with the help of armies of volunteers like you that we can meet the needs of so many people. We’d love to have you join our team!
210 Overlook Drive Sewickley, PA 15143. Monday- Friday we have two sessions- morning, 9am- noon, and afternoon, 1:00- 4:00pm. Adjustments can be made as needed, and a group can request an entire day. We have several meeting spaces available as well as tables for lunch. Saturday mornings from 9:00am- noon are also an option from September- May.
This volunteer work is integral to the work at World Vision Pittsburgh. Only through the work completed by our volunteers can we inventory the product in our digital inventory management system which provides real-time visibility and access to specific products by our field relations team. This enables the field agents to choose what items are most useful for the communities in need.
