MMDC has few staff, so the vast majority of our mission is carried out by volunteers. MMDC needs and loves its volunteers! There are many ways in which you can volunteer at MMDC: serve for a day, for a week or anything in between.
Volunteers pack kits, sort items, sew, help with mailings, build desks, repair bicycles and sewing machines, help load/unload supplies or whatever the current requested needs are at the time.
There are opportunities for those at peak ability and for those individuals who may have limitations. No matter your abilities, there is an important job that needs you!
MMDC has volunteers that stay on campus or local volunteers that just come when they are available. If you want to volunteer at MMDC, we will gladly work with you to find a time that works.
