HELP WITH ANNUAL FREEDOM FEST & 5K

The annual event takes place in April.  Participants are invited to dress in superhero costumes, and there is a festival after the 5K with free food, live music, free games, costume contest, and anti-human trafficking talks for everyone.  Free the Captives needs volunteers to set up, check participants in, provide directions, hand out refreshments, help with games, clean up, and other tasks.

 

 

 

HELP WITH OTHER ANNUAL EVENTS
Teenagers are welcome to help with Free the Captives annual Christmas Market in December, the Houston Human Trafficking Conference on a Saturday in February, and the Offshore Technology Conference Outreach Event in the spring.  The best way to stay informed about these events is sign up for FTC newsletters, which include information about volunteer meetings, and check the FTC calendar.

 

 

PROVIDE CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION FOR TRAFFICKED TEEN

Do you want to make Christmas special for a teen trafficking victim in Houston? “Many of our girls never had a proper Christmas – no trees, no lights, no Christmas dinner, and no presents. You and a group of your friends can change that for our girls!  This is a great opportunity for a Sunday School class, Bible study group, or small group to buy and wrap presents and provide a Christmas dinner for a trafficked girl.”

If interested, please fill out this form. Sponsorships are limited.
