Future Farmers and Mission Central

As part of the Future Farmers of America's (FFA) State Legislative Leadership Conference, 400 plus FFA Leaders are participating in volunteer service projects on Monday, March 19th at Mission Central and other mid-state locations. Mission Central is coordinating the program for FFA.

70 of the leaders are scheduled to work at Mission Central. They will dispose of brush, maintain the Memorial Garden, and perform other outside jobs. They will also assist in cleaning and re-organizing part of the 48,000 square foot facility. Students will be seen outside completing yard work tasks, cleaning, stacking, completing disaster response kits, and organizing materials and goods to be shipped to mission projects locally and internationally.

More than 230 ministries and programs have been served through the warehouse/distribution center. Local partners include Bethesda Mission, Computer Ministry, New Digs, and Project C.U.R.E. Mission Central is a member of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) Network, the worldwide disaster relief agency of the United Methodist Church.
