How can you help? Individuals or organizations can purchase items and assemble kits according to the specifications outlined by MCC. The cloth bags for the kits are made up at the MCC Material Resource Center of Harleysville. They are available free of charge by calling the office.
Please call 267-203-8074 if you have some time to volunteer each week. A few hours during the week is fine.
Volunteer opportunities include warehouse work, helping with comforter construction, quilting, cutting fabric for bags, rugs and comforter patches.
If your Sunday School class, youth group, school, business, or other group would like to volunteer please call to be scheduled. We would love to show you our center, tell you about MCC’s work and have you work on projects. Volunteer tasks include decorating comforter patches, knotting comforters, checking and packing kits, and some warehouse tasks.
Our center is open Monday thru Thursday 9 am to 3 pm, Friday 9 am to 1 pm, evenings by appointment.
You can also make financial donations to MCC Material Resource Center of Harleysville for the purchase of materials for any of the kits or to contribute to our general operating expenses. We are a 501c-3 agency and gifts are tax deductible. Contact or send your financial gift to: MCC Material Resource Center of Harleysville, 737 Hagey Center Drive, Unit C, Souderton, PA 18964. You can donate for a specific need or “where most needed”.
A handmade comforter provided not only warmth but also a tangible message to people that their needs are not forgotten.
You can help by donating fabric for comforters; cotton and cotton blends are ideal. You can also cut fabric patches or sew the patches together. If you enjoy working with other people, come to the MRC and join other volunteers knotting or tying the comforters with large needles and thick thread to hold the layers together.
Many businesses such as plumbers, mechanics and body shops use rags in their work. One hundred percent cotton t-shirts make excellent rags.
Join our volunteers to cut discarded one hundred percent t-shirts into rag sized pieces, fold and bag them for sale. Proceeds from the sale of rags supports the work of supplying relief goods to people in need of hygiene kits, infant care kits, relief kits, school kits and sewing kits.
Donations of t-shirts are also welcome.
