Your donations make it possible for volunteers to repair and rebuild homes in disaster affected communities.
More than 1,500 volunteers have answered the call to serve in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico in response to last year’s hurricanes. Their hard work has resulted in the clean-up, repair or rebuilding of more than 600 homes and properties. Our work continues in these communities and we are prepared to be there for the long haul.
Now, MDS is preparing to respond to the next storm. Please pray for those in the path of Hurricane Florence. Thanks to support from donors like you, MDS will be ready to respond, rebuild and restore once again.
The average cost to support a volunteer is $40 a day. With your support, MDS can provide volunteers with dormitory-style lodging, home-cooked meals, tools, equipment and transportation from a work camp to a house recovery project.

Through the MDS Legacy Fund, you can support under-funded long-term disaster response projects. Often these are the “quiet disasters” – those events that have not received widespread attention or support.
You can designate a gift of any size to the MDS Legacy Fund, at any time.
Ask MDS partners with Everence (Mennonite Church), Mennonite Brethren Foundation, and the Brethren in Christ Foundation to help you explore the planned giving options that are right for your situation.
Through gift planning, you can provide future support for MDS, while also giving you and your loved ones financial flexibility, potential tax benefits and even income for life.
