There are many ways to get involved at UMD and make a difference in someone’s life.
In a single year, more than 2,000 volunteers work with us to help their neighbors in need. Individuals help, and so do groups from companies, communities of faith, and schools. UMD depends on them to serve those in need and to create a welcoming, caring, and compassionate environment that affirms the dignity of all.
Throughout the year, there are opportunities to serve, celebrate, raise funds, collect, learn, comfort and be comforted as our entire community shares the journey together.
Volunteer today. Or organize a service project. Both are great ways to help us provide food, shelter and a future to our neighbors in need. Together we can build a stronger community.
Volunteers: Check this site for any changes to scheduled events. Thank you.
