More than 64,000 people volunteered in 2012, make the difference in the lives of thousands.

At GIJ Search and Rescue, we help all friends and families in their most chaotic time of need by providing physical and logistical aid during the search for their missing loved ones. In addition to the essential emotional support, our trained ground personnel facilitate the search and rescue; GIJoe aims to provide comprehensive assistance at the most sensitive and critical of times.

Not only does each contribution provide a solid operational foundation for the organization, it also helps with overhead expenses, and funding of training for the GIJ staff and volunteers.

Any contribution to the organization directly helps the families we support by striving to make change with a positive outcome.
