Byron Community Ministries currently has over 300 volunteers. Service opportunities include working at our pantry, sorting items, cleaning, making deliveries to clients, hanging up clothing in our clothing closet, delivering meals to the home-bound, serving meals at our senior luncheon and many other ways.
Volunteering is a fabulous avenue to become better connected within our community. Actively contributing to the needs of others is invaluable.
BCM can assist others in creative and tangible ways because of the outpouring of our volunteers. Perhaps God is prompting you to be involved at Byron Ministries. Please give us a call at 878-6000 to discuss where you might serve along side us
