Brethren Service Center 2010

Brethren Service Center
New Windsor, Maryland
The Brethren Service Center in New Windsor, MD, has been helping people in need for over sixty-five years. Owned and operated by the Church of the Brethren, it houses organizations that work in areas of relief and development, disaster response, social justice, peace education and hospitality.
A brief 2-day mission experience at the Center provided opportunities for volunteer service in two venues. Day #1 was spent at the material resources warehouse, where personal hygiene kits were sorted and packed for future distribution. Day #2 was spent in quality inspection and pricing at SERRV, a fair-trade marketplace.
