MAM Back to School

Local Schools

Mentored youth report better behavior, stronger friendships, and improved grades because of the commitment of one adult. You can be that ONE ADULT!

With just a small investment of time once a week as a mentor or tutor, you can make a big difference in the life of a young person at a local school. In just 30-60 minutes weekly, mentors, tutors, and volunteers supply the gift of hope to those they touch and give young people a vision of success.

Kids' Meals

In Houston, one in four preschool children go to bed hungry. You can make sure there is one less empty tummy! Kids' Meals is a community based organization which serves healthy lunches to preschool-aged children living in poverty. Nutritious meals are provided Monday through Friday year-round, free of cost to the families.

At MDPC, we meet the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 4:30 to 6:00pm in our Fellowship Hall with a goal of making 5,000 ham sandwiches. Each participant is asked to bring four loaves of white or wheat bread and a servant's heart. All are welcome, so come join the effort to end childhood hunger in Houston!

Registration is REQUIRED and opens on the 1st of each month.

2022 Kids' Meals Dates:
Aug 10, Sep 14, Oct 12, Nov 9, Dec 14
