Who we are?

 Ease the Burden is a Christ-centered nonprofit created to help those in need by training kids to serve others.


The Christian faith teaches us to help others in need. Fulfilling this duty gives a sense of purpose, a sense of accomplishment, and creates a bond with those we serve. But service must be learned and taught. By training younger generations to serve others, needs are met, the community is strengthened, and lives are enriched.
Accordingly, the mission of Ease the Burden is to care for our local community by partnering with groups, businesses, and organizations to provide service opportunities for school-age children.

What we do?

Ease the Burden partners with local groups (i.e., schools, churches, and home school groups) to organize and coordinate community service projects that involve school-age kids. Projects help those in need and teach the next generation the value of service. Individuals with life experience are utilized to demonstrate service, teach skills, and pass on wisdom.

Ease the Burden partners with businesses to provide the funds necessary for service projects. Kids are given the opportunity to serve without worrying about raising financial support. Partnering businesses are given the opportunity to help others, train future generations, and give back to the community. Ease the Burden partners with other nonprofit organizations to care for our local community.

Ease the Burden compliments these organizations and does not seek to compete.
Through Ease the Burden, partnering organizations receive food raised from growing projects, volunteer service, and physical resources.


Grow Ease the Burden seeks to provide nutritious food for those in need, teach agricultural skills, and improve the environment of our community.

 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!
