Murrysville Christian Concern Inc. (MC2) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that was founded in 1968 by a group of local citizens who had the desire to help those in need. From its beginnings in the small Emmanuel Lutheran Church on Roosevelt Avenue in Export, MC2 has grown, under the direction of a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors, to provide a number of social services including emergency food, free monthly community meal, individual financial aid and providing low cost household items to our community at the Friends’ Thrift Shop.
Murrysville Christian Concern is self-sufficient, generating the majority of funds used in its charitable outreach through sales of donated clothing, furniture and household items at the thrift shop. Income is also generated through the sale of not suitable baled clothing and is sold to the needy in other countries.
The key to success of Murrysville Christian Concern is the many volunteers who week after week give the time and effort necessary to keep the thrift shop and other social programs operating smoothly. The Board of Directors invites all the residents of the Murrysville, Delmont, Export and Penn Township communities to come and enjoy a special shopping experience at the Friends’ Thrift Shop, a modern, clean and organized store. Every item taken home contributes to the work of Murrysville Christian Concern. In addition, your donations of good and used clothing, household items and furniture allow the thrift shop to generate the revenue needed to fund the social service programs of Murrysville Christian Concern.
