Mission Central's Online Auction

The Mission Central Gala for 2021 was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic so we are having a big online auction instead!!

This year's online auction is brought to you by Bobby Rahal Toyota and Penn State Health. Please join us by saving the dates - September 16-19, 2021 so you can bid on some amazing baskets and goodies.

Other ways you can help:
  • Prepare a basket or encourage your church, business, partners, friends, neighbors to go together to create one!
  • Donate items for baskets directly to Mission Central. We may put them with others to create a basket. (All items are due August 1, 2021.)
  • Spread the word! Share our Facebook posts on the auction!
  • Consider sponsorship of the auction. (Just reach out to Stephanie for details.)
  • Bid and bid generously! :-) Every dollar goes directly to our mission.

Thank you for your support!
Mission Central celebrates 20 years of service in 2022!

Come volunteer with us! We are looking for a volunteer to run the backdoor/donation station on Tuesdays this summer. Hours are 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM. This is perfect for college students, school students or retirees. You must be 16 or older. Contact Laurie at lwhitmyer@missioncentral.org.

We are in urgent need of about 100 50" x 60" fleece/small weave blankets for our Mission Central Blessings Kits. We will need them in an ongoing way as well. If you are able to make or donate them, please drop them off to us Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM.

Thanks so much!
