Event description

Description

The mission of Metropolitan Ministries is to care for the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless in the community through services that alleviate suffering, promote dignity, and instill self sufficiency.
WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?

The Project Helping group of volunteers will bring hope directly into the community by working in the outreach center – helping clients shop for food in the MetroMarket or shop for clothing in the MetroOutfitters market. Other much needed tasks may include sorting and shelving donations. As space is limited, make sure to register before participating in this awesome event!
