Packing over 350,000 meals in one weekend takes a variety of talents and gifts.

seasonal packing support team

From the months of December through May, MHMM partners with many local schools and students groups who are eager to put their hands to work and make a difference. We are in desperate need of volunteers to support these events during school hours and evenings. Packing Team volunteers are asked to commit to just three events a year, but this small amount of time will make it possible for us to continue our mission to instill a heart of service in children.
