  • Volunteer opportunity with Eastern Mennonite Missions

    450 North Prince Street, Lancaster PA 17602  | 

    Need a break from being at home?

    There is an opportunity for you to volunteer at EMM’s new office building at 450 North Prince Street, currently under construction.

    We’re looking for help pulling new ethernet cables throughout the building. The work is not very physically demanding, however, volunteers should be in reasonably good health. We will follow strict COVID-19 guidelines, by providing work masks for all volunteers, and everyone must abide by 6-foot social distancing parameters. If you’re interested in signing up for a time during the month of June, you can go to emm.org/cables.

  • MCC at the Material Resources Center

    517 W Trout Run Rd, Ephrata, PA 17522  | 

    Much of the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC)’s humanitarian aid sent throughout the world passes through the Material Resources Center (MRC) in Ephrata, PA, including comforters, canned meat, hygiene kits, school kits, and other material resources. Our paper and clothing recycling efforts generate approximately $250,000 of income for MCC’s ministries.

    We couldn’t do any of this without our volunteers who will make this work possible. Typically, the MRC is a very busy place… but for the past three months, we have been closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, after having now reopened with proper safety precautions, we are looking for individuals, families, or even a small group of friends or a Bible Study group to volunteer! Daytime, evening, and Saturday hours are a possibility. There is something for everyone to do!

    Please contact us at (717) 733-2847 or email our Volunteer Coordinator, Marilyn Peters, at MarilynPeters@mcc.org if you would like to find out more about volunteering. You can also learn more about the Ephrata MRC at mcc.org/Ephrata-MRC. Thank you for your continued support of MCC!
