More about MCC Great Lakes
We’re responding to human needs at home and abroad in the name of Christ. There are many ways you can get involved!
Connect with us through relief sales, thrift shops, the SWAP program in Appalachia, making kits and comforters and other volunteer opportunities.
Volunteer with SWAP
