Who we are?

Ease the Burden is a Christ-centered nonprofit seeking to strengthen our community by training kids to serve others.

Why?

The Christian faith teaches us that it is our duty to help those in need. Not surprisingly, some of life's greatest joys are found in providing service to others. We receive a sense of purpose when we care for those in need. When we volunteer our services for the greater good, we receive a sense of accomplishment and community. Service to others, however, must be taught. Accordingly, the mission of Ease the Burden is to provide an opportunity for school-age kids to learn to serve others. It is our belief that by training younger generations to serve others selflessly, needs will be met, the community will be strengthened, and lives will be enriched with a greater sense of purpose.

What we do?

Ease the Burden partners with schools, churches, and home school groups to organize and coordinate community service projects for school age kids. Each community service project will target one of three areas.

Plant and Clean

We are to be stewards of the land. As a result, Ease the Burden organizes projects that may include:
· Planting trees, shrubs, and other perennial plants that protect streams, lakes, or wetlands
· Trash pickup
· Park beautification

Brighten

Ease the Burden seeks to brighten the lives of the lonely and forgotten.
Projects may include:
· Visiting nursing homes
· Writing cards
· Doing yard work for an elderly shut-in

Heal

Ease the Burden looks to help heal those who have been subjected to abuse or struggled with addiction.
Projects may include:
· Providing care packages

Latest Acts of Kindness

We would like to take a moment to thank these learners from the Pequea Valley Intermediate School for their generosity. This crew designed and handcrafted over 625 cards filled with encouraging words! These cards were sent out to folks in our communities in need of kindness. They were made for those residing in assisted living facilities including Conestoga View in Lancaster, Maple Farm Nursing Center in Akron, Mt Hope Nazarene in Manheim, Newport Meadows in Christiana & Brethren Village in Lititz. We are certain their selfless act touched many lives!
⭐⭐⭐⭐Thank you PVIS for choosing kindness!⭐⭐⭐⭐
