In the midst of a global pandemic, we want to be a clear picture of God’s love across our city. Therefore, we are coordinating a church-wide effort to provide food and hygiene products to neighbors and communities in need. We have a network of relationships with schools and other churches, and they have shared with us about the need for food for children in light of them not being in school, and for families in light of various challenges at work. As a result, we are working closely with local officials according to CDC guidelines to pack and deliver helpful products to communities across our city. See below for more details and opportunities to get involved.
We are looking for ten families to sign up to “do the work” in their neighborhoods. These families will commit to holding one event in their neighborhood before the end of the year that is aimed at engaging their neighbors.
Fill out this Interest Form, and we will reach out to you with opportunities to pack and deliver products. Please be patient with us as we coordinate many moving parts amidst a constantly changing situation.
Please note: We strongly encourage those who are more at-risk in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19), particularly the elderly and those with current medical conditions or compromised immune systems, to stay at home as much as possible during this time. In addition, if you have any symptoms of sickness or have been exposed to anyone who is sick, you are not permitted to be a part of this work. Please stay at home and contact a medical professional, as appropriate. Volunteers must be at least 13 years old. However, children 10-12 may serve at our packing site with parental supervision.
Please click here to give toward the MBC Care Fund, and on behalf of all those who are being helped, thank you for your generosity!
*No glass containers or bulk packages please*
Please leave donations at MBC Tysons Clothing Shop donation cottage (in front of Door 2 on the lower level parking garage)
NOTE: We are not receiving clothing donations during the time of the pandemic
MBC distributes food at sites across the DMV, including in many economically vulnerable communities. Please see below for dates, times, and locations. At these distributions, anyone who is in need or knows someone in need can pick up a box of food on a first-come, first-served basis.
Occasionally, we face disruptions to our regular schedule. For up-to-the-minute updates on our distribution sites, please check out our Facebook page.
We are working within CDC guidelines for safety and sanitation in all that we are doing. From hand washing and sanitizing to using gloves and following guidelines for social distancing in the packing process, we are undertaking these efforts with extreme sensitivity to sanitary, medical, and safety concerns for those who are packing, delivering, and/or receiving care packages.
