Miscellanous Giving

The generosity of the community makes it possible for MDC to help make an apartment a home for a young adult who was previously homeless, to ensure that thousands of homes are able to keep the power on and hundreds of families will have a place to call home this winter.

Without the support of the community, none of this is possible. The struggling economy has put a greater demand on MDC services while donations are shrinking. This year, your support to MDC and the community is crucial. Listed below are a few ways that you can help make an important difference. If your organization, group or business is interested in getting involved in one or more of the following ways, call the MDC Resource Advancement Office at (253) 284-9056 for more information.
