February Mission Focus: 

Midwest Mission Distribution Center

Midwest Mission Distribution Center (MMDC) provides opportunities for individuals and groups of all walks of life, denominational backgrounds, abilities, and ages to help provide disaster relief, education and medical supplies to those in need both locally, nationally and internationally.

The 8-acre campus located in southern Illinois has several workshops to carry out their mission. Desks are constructed in a wood shop and shipped to mission schools in other countries. A sewing machine shop repairs machines that are then shipped overseas providing a livelihood for recipients. Bicycles are in demand as a mode of transportation so MMDC collects bikes, repairs them, and distributes them nationally and internationally.

In addition to cash donations, MMDC accepts supplies to fill kits for various needs:

  • School supplies to fill book bags that a sewn by volunteers (including OCC)
  • Flood buckets filled with cleaning supplies send to areas that have experienced a flood, hurricane or other disasters
  • Personal dignity kits with shampoo, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.

The work is done mostly by volunteers who come from all over the US to serve (including OCC Mission Teams!).  MMDC is a cooperating depot in the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) Relief Supply Network.  For those receiving the supplies, they are bringing hope that someone somewhere loves them.
