Looking for a Way to Give Back?
GCU is proud to offer members and employees many ways to volunteer at the lodge and Home Office level. We are currently working on a national database to connect volunteers with opportunities that suit their interests.
412 Food Rescue
412 Food Rescue believes good food belongs to people not landfills. So, we created the 412 Food Rescue app to make saving food and feeding people easy! Download the app to be alerted when surplus foods are available at grocery stores and restaurants nearby. In less than one hour, volunteers transport donations from retailers to a designated nonprofit serving neighbors in need.
