HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Not everyone can leave town for a week to go on one of our mission trips. At Maumee UMC we plan in-town volunteering opportunities during the daytime, evening, and weekends. Some will be scheduled group activities, and others will be individual in nature, so you can schedule your own hours. Take a look at some of the opportunities we have put together for you!
GROUP VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
We supply and cook meals for approximately 150 people 2-3 times a month: 3rd Thursday , 4th Tuesday, and 5th Sunday . The 4th Tuesday we also give out 100 bags of grocers to help our friends get through the end of the month. How can you help?
