MEMORIAL ASSISTANCE MINISTRIES (MAM)

What Is It?: A nonprofit that “helps people bounce back from a crisis and care for their families.”  Volunteer and paid caseworkers help MAM clients address their immediate needs with an array of emergency services, then help find long-term solutions to underlying issues that will continue to threaten families’ long-term stability.

 

Help Needed: Assist customers, sort and price donations, and help in other ways at MAM’s popular resale store.

 

Minimum Age to Volunteer: 13; youth aged 13-15 must be accompanied by an adult while volunteering.  Students under the age of 18 need written parental permission to volunteer.

HELP AT RESALE STORE & BOUTIQUE

MAM’s Resale Store sales generate $1.7 million annually.  This is 38% of the funds MAM needs to provide services to more than 20,000 people a year. Volunteers are needed to assist customers, sort and price donations, operate the cash register, work on displays, and make simple repairs on merchandise.

 

COLLECT NEEDED ITEMS

MAM hosts three major drives each year: for back-to-school supplies, Christmas gifts, and household necessities such as cleaning supplies.  It also collects items for snack bags that are given to hungry clients.  More information about these drives is here.
