How Volunteers Help


Volunteers are essential to our work. Stuffing Kare Packages can be a time consuming task and this year, in 2023, we have ambitiously set the goal of reaching over 1000 Kare Packages (that's over 300% more than last year!). Thankfully, we have people like you who not only want to help Joyful Smiles Thru Faith achieve its mission, but can help put a smile on a child's face by personally choosing the toys and activities included in their Kare Package!


Our volunteers also help during events or with set up and take down and will have proper direction and training from the event committee.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us at support@jstftoledo.org or call (419) 304-3670. You can also fill out the contact form to add your name to our volunteer database and we will contact you when we are in need of volunteers for our next event!

Volunteer Recognition

Thank you to the following Toledo-based organizations for the generous support in volunteering time and resources to stuff Kare Packages for us!


Fun Fact: The University of Toledo NSSLHA Chapter has faithfully stuffed Kare Packages for us every year since Joyful Smiles Thru Faith was founded in 2015! 

Service Learning and Mentorship Programs


As part of our 2023 goal to engage the community and expand our community outreach, we will be developing service learning and mentorship programs that align with our visions to "energize and inspire the community to become more involved" and "increase inclusiveness, compassion, and volunteerism amonth the youth of our community."
