The cicadas seem to be announcing that Summer is just about here, which means that Father’s Day and graduation celebrations will soon be upon us! As we celebrate Dads and Grads, we also remember that many of our neighbors continue to face ongoing challenges due to the pandemic and other life issues. MUM is here to help neighbors facing those situations. Although our choice pantry at the office location remains closed, our mobile pantry operates on Sundays, serving the Wheaton, Kensington, Rockville, Aspen Hill, and Silver Spring areas. And our office is open by appointment for those needing assistance with eviction, utilities, and prescription drug purchase.
Neighbors in Montgomery County also have access to a wide range of resources beyond what MUM can offer, including COVID Testing, Vaccination Sites, and Health Education; Healthcare; Food Resources; Financial Assistance and Employment; Housing; Immigration and Language Resources; and the Montgomery County Crisis Center. See this flyer in English and Spanish to learn more about any of these resources.
MUM has been fortunate throughout the pandemic to receive grants that have allowed us to continue our operations and to expand the number of people served by our mobile pantry. The continued support of individual donors has also been vital. Your donations are needed now as much as ever, as the hardships faced by many of our neighbors continue.
Giving to MUM is easy! Please consider helping now to allow MUM to continue its work! Here’s how to make a financial donation.
You can also help by volunteering! See how here.
Many of our neighbors also need baby supplies. See the MUM wish list on Amazon.
The choice pantry in our office location remains closed due to COVID restrictions, and our Sunday Mobile Pantry Sites (English | Spanish) have been serving more neighbors than ever since COVID began! Mobile Pantry hours are 2pm – 4pm. In case of inclement weather on a Mobile Pantry Sunday please call 301-929-8675 for updates.
Appointments for assistance with eviction, utilities, and prescription drugs can be made by contacting the MUM office by telephone at 301-929-8675, by fax at 301-929-8234, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
