Supporting Our Friends

27 Nov

We wrap up Thanksgiving weekend with an opportunity to show our gratitude and support for the great work the Mount Carmel Foundation supports through Steven Simpkins placement with the Mt. Carmel Healthy Living Center during his Episcopal Service Corps year with Confluence Year.

“MCHLC is always looking for and willing to accept volunteers. The Healthy Living Center has programs and meetings any given day so extra hands and smiling faces are always welcome. The MCHLC valuesrelationships first and foremost so the first time or two that you offer your time would involve shadowing whatever events are on that day during the time that works best for you. One of the coolest things about spending time at MCHLC is there will almost inevitably be free food for you to eat. So really you cannot go wrong with volunteering at MCHLC. You can help an amazing place live out its mission and likely get a meal too! Really nothing could go wrong if MCHLC ends up not being a good fit for you.

If volunteering during the day is difficult to fit in your schedule I encourage you to check out the Community Friendship program. Community Friendship is where people who have struggled with homelessness gather together with Mount Carmel staff and volunteers to share a common meal and learn from one another. It is an incredibly loving space that everyone would benefit from participating in at least once. The Community Friendship program meets once every month on Tuesday in the early evening.

MCHLC also always accepts monetary donations. Follow the link below and choose Healthy Living Center under designations to contribute. These donations allow MCHLC to provide new, better, and more programming for the greater community. Visit this site to make a donation to the Healthy Living Center- https://donor.mountcarmelfoundation.org/sslpage.aspx?pid=298
