At MCCPB we are a church of many ministers. And a big part of that ministry is service to others. We serve the most vulnerable in our community through our weekly food pantry, Thrift Store, HIV Long Term Survivors Network, Family Promise and promoting awareness for social justice issues through marches and demonstrations.
Thrift Store – Volunteers staff our “Enough for All” Thrift Store Tuesdays – Saturdays; proceeds help support MCCPB’s numerous ministries.
Family Promise – Working with interfaith team, our MCCPB volunteers share God’s inclusive and transformative love by providing meals and housing to families as they transition to employment and permanent homes.
Food Pantry – MCC of the Palm Beaches’ Food Pantry has grown to serve approximately 2,000 people each month. Our team distributes grocery staples and fresh produce to people from all walks of life on every Wednesday during the month [except the 5th Wednesday, when they are closed]. The Food pantry set-up is on Tuesday and operates from 1:00-4:00 pm. Most volunteers arrive around 10:30 am to help set up before the actual distribution. The contact for the Food Pantry is BJ at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The HIV Long Term Survivors Network helps to build and maintain a resilient community of long term survivors by providing social, educational and other activities that nurture connecting relationships with others and promotes life-affirming self-care. For additional information, please contact our HIV Program Director, Chris Lacharite at email@example.com.
Rainbow Ball – a “fun-filled evening of dancing and dining, entertainment and socializing.” It is MCCPB’s largest annual fundraiser. We also present the Ruby Red Slipper Award to a member of the community for their dedication and service to the LGBTQ community.
Pridefest – Palm Beach Pride is the Palm Beaches’ largest LGBTQ visibility event and a celebration of the community’s true and great diversity. At this annual event, volunteers share MCCPB’s welcoming and inclusive message of love and respect by staffing a MCCPB booth, hosting a Sunday Service in Lake Worth and marching in MCCPB’s contingent in the Pride Parade through the streets of downtown Lake Worth.
