MCC needs assistance in picking up material aid and building supplies from outside locations, such as Akron, Pa. and Goshen, Ind. Trips can be planned year round as volunteers are available. Vehicles and travel costs are usually provided for these trips.
Additionally, MCC owns and uses a number of properties in Eastern Kentucky that are in need of upkeep. Assistance with the maintenance allows MCC workers to focus more time on program work in Appalachia. This maintenance includes cutting lawns, minor building repairs and painting. If there are other skills that volunteers bring, MCC Appalachia will look within the community to match interests with the needs here (i.e. education, reading, crafts, etc.)
Lodging: RV accommodations are available in several locations. Also available are two self-contained small homes and bedrooms in the group facility, which has a large shared space for other volunteers.
