Operation InAsMuch United

It takes just a few days to make a huge impact on our community! Operation InAsMuch United is a 10-day period of time during which congregations of all faiths and sizes come together for service projects at ABCCM locations and other places in Buncombe County. Multiple projects are available to congregations of all sizes during the entire period of Operation InAsMuch United. Buildings are repaired, rooms painted, yards made to bloom -- enhancing the dignity of all who visit ABCCM to either seek help or offer hope.

For more information on how to participate, contact ABCCM Ministry Development Officer Rick Schilling at 259-5305 or rick.schilling@abccm.org.

“We all know ABCCM does a super job. But they need help to meet other needs. We want to get people mobilized, and this is one way to do that.”-David Crocker, Operation Inasmuch founder
