MCC hosts both organizations at Jumu’ah services bi-annually. Please subscribe to our newsletter for our next collection. Please do not drop off used items at the MCC facility. We do not have the storage space and we often must pay to dispose of the items.
You may also purchase online these household items for the apartment furnishing of refugee families that will ship directly to MCC using our Amazon apartment set-up gift list.
For the East Bay, you might also consider Savers Dublin and Goodwill of Greater East Bay. For vehicle donations to MCC, please see here.
New donations we may accept on an as-needed basis
