A team gathers and packs once a month at the Mobility Worldwide warehouse at 1908 Heriford Road.

behind the scenes

The Container Project is a regional ministry that provides gently used clothing to people in need. In some cases, clothing is provided to families around the corner or around the state.

Behind the Scenes (located in Room 601) is Community's partner ministry for The Container Project.

Behind the Scenes accepts donations of clothing, shoes, linens and other items, then packages and distributes items either to local wardrobes and shelters or to The Container Project, which then distributes to other locations.
