Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Volunteering with Great Shape changed my life! I spent two weeks working with gracious, courageous people (locals and fellow volunteers) who opened my eyes & heart in ways I'd never imagined. I can't wait to get back to the island ... there are always new lessons to learn and share!

I have volunteered with Great Shape coming up on 3 years. It is so rewarding and life changing working with the children. They give so much LOVE. Their smiles, the hugs, the appreciation that I get from them make me keep volunteering over and over again. Each year gets better and better.
Great Shape is an AMAZING organization that provides an amazing experience, not only for their volunteers, but especially for the lives they touch through their various programs. I would go back to work with them in a heartbeat!!
