There are a number of ways in which you can serve others through MCCLA. We have weekly, monthly and annual service opportunities as well as special offerings throughout the year. Here are just a few, and please look further through this section for more information.
The fourth Sunday of every month is our Helping Hands Offering Sunday, alternating between HopeNet, Brown Bag and our Paul Gronberg Benevolence Fund.
Brown Bag Lunches
Make sure you mark your calendars for the second Sunday of every month to come together to help make sandwiches after services. The 300+ lunches that we put together are then taken to those who are in dire need in downtown Los Angeles. Drivers are always needed. It is a guarantee…you WILL be blessed by this ministry!
HopeNet Needs Volunteers – Fridays & Saturdays
HopeNet needs volunteers to organize and distribute food! For more information, contact Jose Narciso or Reverend Pat Langlois at hopenet AT mccla DOT org. Volunteers are needed: Fridays, 1 – 3 pm (unloading food, organizing for distribution) and Saturdays,
8 – 11 am (distribution is at 9:00 AM). We are also seeking hand can-openers to be donated so that we can offer them to those who are in need of them who come to the pantry. HopeNet is an interfaith effort to eliminate hunger and homelessness in Los Angeles by providing food, shelter and self-help assistance to families and individuals.
You Can Help by Donating Food to the MCCLA Food Pantry
Deacon Garret Klindt reports that more people are now using our Pantry and Food Cart than ever before…not only those on Sunday but throughout the week. If you are able to make a contribution it would be much appreciated by all. It is a wonderful thing that our church is helping those in need. Gifts that would be particularly welcome include:
- Boost (Chocolate preferred, but all flavors appreciated. Boost is the desired nutritional supplement as it doesn’t need to be refrigerated to taste good).
- Canned vegetables or foods.
- Hygienic products (Soaps, toothbrush/toothpaste, combs).
- Bottled water.
