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
Participate in this home repair ministry in Appalachia. As part of our Sharing With Appalachian People (SWAP) program, you’ll work to make homes safe, warm and dry while learning about Appalachia and developing relationships.
Kidron Material Resources Building Project
The new Material Resources Center will allow the Kidron, Ohio, community to increase the number of kits and comforters we currently collect. The 11,000 square foot building will consist of 4,200 square feet of warehouse, 4,200 square feet for a workroom and 2,600 square feet of administrative space.
