Happy Thanksgiving 2014

As you celebrate Thanksgiving, our annual national celebration of Food and Football, and as you remember the things for which you are Thankful, please know how much we are thankful for this community of folks in Marion County who support this ministry through their generosity of time, talent and treasure, and we are thankful for our tireless Volunteers who make this ministry happen.

Happy Thanksgiving y’all!

Good Neighbors Reopens

On October 28, the Good Neighbors Program reopened for business. As I write this we are experiencing our first cold snap of the season.

The Good Neighbors Program assists our neighbors in paying their utility bills, electricity, water, propane or natural gas. Please click HERE for more information about Good Neighbors.

Warm Clothing Drive Continues

Many of our neighbors who come to us for help do not have warm coats, hats, gloves, sox, blankets, etc. Although MCCM is not in the clothing business primarily, we do have some space set aside for these items and they are greatly appreciated by our neighbors.

Each November, December, and January we would appreciate donations of warm clothing. Some churches and organizations annually hold “Warm Clothing Drives.
