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.
Dinner Shift at the Bowery Mission, Sunday, September 10 – MABC is again looking for volunteers to serve dinner to homeless guests at the Bowery Mission. Volunteers arrive at 227 Bowery at 5:30 p.m. We will report to the kitchen staff on duty, get oriented, help prep the meal, serve, and clean up after dinner. We’ll be finished by 7:30 p.m. For more information or to sign up, please contact Adom Crew, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Continuing until Labor Day, the Community Ministries Board will be running a Back-to-School Drive to support an underserved middle school in the Bronx. Specifically, we will be working with MS 337 School for Inquiry and Social Justice. The school has requested the following items for donation: pencils, pens, markers, composition books, folders, loose leaf paper, handheld pencil sharpeners, tissues, hand sanitizer, glue sticks, scissors, tape, and construction paper.
If you’d like to donate, there will be a box in the Sanctuary. For more information, feel free to contact Adom Crew at email@example.com. Thanks!
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.
