To our valued MCC Great Lakes supporters
We want to let you know how MCC is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic as we remain committed to sharing God’s love and compassion with all in the name of Christ. Our primary concern continues to be the health and wellbeing of our supporters, staff, volunteers, partners and those they serve.
Material Resources Centers
The Material Resources Center at The Depot in Goshen, Indiana, is open for limited hours until further notice. Donations can be dropped off from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, or by appointment. To schedule a time or for questions, contact the Goshen Material Resources Coordinator at GreatLakes@mcc.org or by phone at 574-534-4071.
The Material Resources Center at MCC Connections in Kidron, Ohio, is closed to volunteer groups but is accepting donations on Monday-Saturday between the hours of 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. For questions contact the Kidron Material Resources Coordinator at GreatLakes@mcc.org.
MCC Thrift Shops
As a precaution for the safety of shoppers, volunteers and staff, some MCC Thrift Shops are operating at reduced hours while others are at full capacity. Because information is changing rapidly, please be in touch with your local thrift shop directly to be sure you have the latest on their hours and information.
With the uncertainty about sales in 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns, this list shows the relief sales across the country with links to their pages for the latest information. Many sales have now moved their auctions online, allowing national participation.
MCC Great Lakes Office Closed
Our office at 1013 Division Street in Goshen is closed. MCC Great Lakes staff are still working from home and ready to respond to your questions. Email GreatLakes@mcc.org or call 574.534.4133.
MCC Appalachia SWAP Office Closed
The MCC Appalachia SWAP office located in Whitesburg, KY is closed.
SWAP is currently accepting volunteers for the 2021 season under a COVID-19 safety plan that includes requiring all staff and volunteers to wear masks according to state guidelines, reducing housing capacity to 50% and increasing cleaning and safety measures. All questions regarding the 2021 SWAP season can be directed to the Appalachia Program Coordinator at 606-225-2289 or via email at AppalachiaPC@mcc.org.
