Lunches for MacCanon Brown Homeless Shelter

Each person comes to MBHS with a different story, yet each one receives food, compassion, love and a helping hand. When they arrive at the food pantry on Tuesdays, they also receive a bag lunch for that day. 

How to help:

There are 3 ways you can choose from:

  • After the 9 am service on the 4th Sunday of each month, we’re asking for anyone who is able to help us make 150 bag lunches for MBHS—no need to sign up, just join us! This is a great service opportunity for Confirmation students too. It’s a short project to help our neighbors before you continue with the rest of your day!
  • We also need grocery shoppers! The week before each sandwich making Sunday (choose the date that works for you), we need a volunteer who will purchase the groceries and deliver them to FPLC. You will be reimbursed for your expenses and we give you a detailed shopping list!
  • The Tuesday after each sandwich making Sunday, we need someone to pick the finished lunches up at FPLC and drive them to MBHS for delivery between 10:15 and 10:45 am. You choose the week that works for you and we'll provide the directions. MBHS is located at 2461 W. Center St. No need to leave your car--volunteers will unload the lunches for you!

Blood Drives @FPLC

Multiple Dates, see below


After a break due to Covid and the construction, we are now able to schedule blood drives again right here at FPLC in Fellowship Hall!

We will have 7 drives throughout the next 12 months—approximately every 9 weeks, so you can donate at each one or whichever dates best fit your schedule.

Drives for 2023 are over. Join us for the drives in 2024!


March 21; 1-6 pm

May 23; 1-6

July 23; 1-6 pm

September 24; 1-6 pm

November 26; 1-6 pm 



If you are interested in volunteering at the blood drives, we would love to have one volunteer at each date for the last 45 minutes to answer any questions the Versiti staff may have and to lock the building up afterwards. If you are interested in one or more dates, please contact Stacia Hickey; or 414-352-8990.

Serenity Inns & Alumni House

Middle Schoolers (with parents) 
and Up!

Serenity Inn's goal is to provide a safe place for men in Milwaukee to recover from their addiction to either drugs or alcohol.  FPLC volunteers provide dinner to the residents 3 times a month. Eat with the men, drop dinner off or even order them a meal to be delivered by a restaurant! They are following COVID-19 protocols. For more information on volunteering, Covid requirements, and/or to sign up, click the "Make a Meal" button below. It's a great activity to do with your middle/high school-aged youth so they can hear the anti-drug/alcohol message.


If you can't make the FPLC dates, or they are full, you can sign up for other dates directly through Serenity Inns' volunteer page. Just click the button below to go to that page.


For more information about volunteering, please contact Lorraine Buehler.
