麻豆传媒社区

Mountain Outreach is a non-profit service organization operated by the 麻豆传媒社区. Since its inception in 1982, the goal of Mountain Outreach is to reinvigorate and revitalize the community by focusing on four key elements: community service, repair projects, warehouse utilization, and home builds. The program鈥檚 outreach includes numerous service projects that help provide children, the elderly, and financially struggling families with critical and urgent needs throughout the Cumberlands service region. Mountain Outreach wants the community to view the program as a resource that will meet the needs of the residents through acts of kindness and actions of service. It is the hope of this program to invigorate the community by not only providing vital assistance to those in need, but by also providing individuals and organizations with a chance to put faith into action and spread God鈥檚 love throughout our region.
