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.
The coldest days of winter still lie ahead, so our winter coat drive continues. 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 March 2017. 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. RMM will also need volunteers to distribute the winter clothing on Mondays from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m. To participate, contact the RMM volunteer coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-594-4464.

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 email@example.com 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, firstname.lastname@example.org.
