We’re always looking for volunteers to help out at our Sunday Coffee Hour, ushering during services and at our many partner organization events. For more opportunities, visit the Community Calendar.
Saturday, April 21st, MABC Cares. Join the MABC team of volunteers for this Saturday of service in our community as we work to replant and refurbish the Joseph Daniel Garden in Harlem, 219 W 122nd St (between Frederick Douglas and Adam Clayton Powell Blvd).
Please arrive at the garden by 8:45 a.m. Work starts at 9:00. We will be done by 1:00 p.m. and will then go to lunch. For more information, please contact Jacki Friedmann, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through our partnership with Rauschenbusch Metro Ministries (RMM) – for which Susan Sparks serves as a board member – MABC will participate in the annual winter coat drive, now until early 2018. We will collect coats, shoes, scarves, gloves, hats, and socks each Sunday in a donation box at the back of the sanctuary. The greatest need is for men’s larger sizes and toiletries. For more information, please contact Adom Crew, email@example.com.
MABC Drive to collect hygiene supplies and toiletries – Working with Metro Baptist Church and New Alternatives for LGBT Homeless Youth, MABC will begin collecting supplies, including: toothbrushes and toothpaste, shampoo, brushes and combs, deoderant, soap, feminine hygiene products, q-tips, as well as new and gently used towels. Donated items can be left in the box at the rear of the sanctuary. Items will provide LGBTQ homeless youth with the essential items they need for self-care.

New Alternatives for LGBT Youth, an organization MABC partnered with earlier in the year for a soup kitchen ministry, has asked for volunteers in writing letters to some of their incarcerated clients. These at-risk individuals often become isolated and vulnerable in jail and this communication helps provide them with support along their journey. If anyone is interested in participating, please email Adom Crew at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Every Tuesday morning from 6:45 to 8:30 a.m., St. Peter’s Church in midtown Manhattan (619 Lexington Ave. @ 54th St.) runs a soup kitchen. They are always looking for volunteers to help out and would welcome members our MABC family with open arms. If anyone is interested in participating, please contact Adom Crew, who participates in this ministry weekly. For additional details, email@example.com.
