MDS Biweekly Update – Fall Scheduling 2019

September 13, 2019

MDS is gearing up for a busy fall season. We are grateful to all the volunteers that have signed up to serve at over 15 projects across the U.S. and Canada this fall. Plenty of slots are still available, so please spread the word about the need or consider volunteering yourself.

Please visit the weekly volunteer calendar, email dfrey@mds.mennonite.net, or calling 800-241-8111 if you are interested in serving as a weekly volunteer

You can view updated Leadership and RV needs here.

Also, be sure to Save The Date for the 2020 All-Unit Meeting will be held in Goshen, Indiana from February 7-8, 2020 at Maple City Chapel, 2015 Lincolnway E., Goshen, IN 46526.

The All-Unit Meeting (AUM) is MDS’ annual meeting in which all units, volunteers, and MDS staff come together to worship, learn, and fellowship. Anyone is welcome to attend.

More Drivers Needed!! 
MDS will be operating an unprecedented number of projects this fall and winter which means a large number of vehicles, tool trailers, shower trailers, shower trailers, etc will need to move from our warehouse to project sites.  These projects all require equipment to be delivered before the weekly volunteers show up to start work. Currently our pool of volunteer drivers is struggling to keep up with the demand and we are in search of more drivers for our pool. We are now in need of 16 drivers for Florida the weeks of September 23 and 30.
