Chances are, you feel best when you know those recipients are people close to you—your neighbors, or those you may encounter every day. Continued

How You Can Help

MUM is a grassroots organization that counts on volunteers and donations.
Gifts to Mid-County United Ministries are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

DONATE MONEY

Your donation directly impacts the lives of people who need it the most. They go to people who may be your neighbors and those in need in your community.

DONATE TIME

MUM depends not only on money, but also on volunteers to help with pantry operations, food drives, media and marketing, fundraising, translation & more.

DONATE FOOD

No one in our society should go hungry, yet some of our clients do. Your donation of food or cash ensures that our pantry remains well stocked.
