Volunteer From Home Or At Church

Volunteer from Home or at Church

Are you bored? Would you like to volunteer with other people who are at a safe physical distance, by yourself or with the people you are isolating with?
Here are some ideas to fill your days.
Volunteer opportunities during COVID-19
  1. Corona Care Caller:
  • Stay in touch with 5 -10 congregation members by calling or e-mailing them each week to find out their needs and give updates from MLC

2. Investigate how MLC can serve the community:

  • Contact churches and community partners in the neighborhood to find out what they are doing, and how we can support or add to existing programs:

    • LAMP
    • St. Margaret’s Church

3. Spring Clean the Church: one family, one person at a time (bring all your own equipment, cleaning agents, etc. to avoid contamination)

  • Clean up sanctuary, organ loft, and foyer:
