Mennonite Disaster Service Seeking More Volunteers This Fall
MDS has an urgent need for volunteers this fall, due to a rise in natural disasters and inclement weather delays this spring. We are thankful for the many leadership volunteers who have stepped up this season and are ready to rebuild and restore homes. Even so, we need the help of our weekly volunteers who are the physical hands and feet of Jesus in Texas, South Dakota, California and more. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve a greater number of disaster survivors this season and we hope you will join us in our ambitious endeavor to bring more people home. “As I think of the thousands of pairs of hands that respond, rebuild and restore homes after a disaster, I am grateful.” Kevin King, Executive Director for MDS. For more information or to serve please visit mds.mennonite.net or call 1-800-241-8111 MDS1.jpg photo caption: MDS volunteers from the California Unit (front to back: Steve Bell, Ed Lund and Ernie Cabrera) work on a client’s home in Lake Isabella, CA.
