We have been thrilled with the support we received as we celebrated all that Mission Central accomplished January - June of this year! Many have asked for ways that they can assist us in our mission of "connecting God's resources with human need." Here are a few ways that you can help! We are incredibly grateful for your support!

Collect! We are currently putting together Mission Central Activity and Care Kits for the school year. There are great deals on back to school supplies. Make some kits or drop off the materials so a volunteer group can make the kits. These Activity Kits go to school students who don't have the necessary supplies to kick off the school year. Mission Central Care Kits help assist with the spread of COVID-19 and other diseases.

Drop-Off! Drop-off blankets, insect repellant, drawstring bags. These are all items in short supply for some of our other kits.

Volunteer! We are always looking for new volunteers to share their gifts in unique ways. Have a special skill to share? We would love to hear from you!

Volunteer Now! We are currently looking for a donation door/warehouse workers on Mondays and Tuesdays through August from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM and Tuesdays throughout the year.

Promote! Promote all Mission Central events on social media and to family and friends! The more we spread the word about Mission Central, the more work that can be done.

Host! Host your own drive. Ask for assistance from coworkers, neighbors, family and friends. Pick an item to collect. School supplies, kit supplies or shoes... we love getting items from you.

Give! Give financially. Every day that we are open, it costs about $1,500 to run Mission Central. Your gift goes a long way in assisting others. All items are provided to those in need at no cost to the recipient. Every $1 that is given we turn into $19 in resources.

Remember! Remember Mission Central when you are cleaning out your closets, garages and more! We love putting your no longer needed items to good use. (We take medical equipment, clothing, housewares and more. No books now though!)

Share! Talk about Mission Central! Tell your friends, neighbors and more. You can even wear Mission Central clothing now. Purchase it here.
