We have occasional volunteer days with Habitat For Humanity in either Springfield, MA or Hartford, CT. We are a member of the ministry support network for medical missionary Kristy Engel in La Romana, Dominican Republic and Haiti. In early 2011, we sent one short term missionary to Calcutta, India to teach knitting to destitute and enslaved women. We are also involved with a number of outreach programs and collect resources for people in need.
