The Kits: Once again this spring, our church will assist UMCOR in its worldwide mission by putting together Hygiene Kits. You will find a materials list – along with Ziplock bags – at the back of the sanctuary.
Would you fill a bag with the items listed below, and deliver them to church by the first week in June? The completed kits will be taken to Annual Conference in Roanoke in mid-June. Monetary donations are also welcome – please make a check out to FUMC and list Hygiene kits in the memo line. Thank you!
The Cans: Donations of non-perishable food are also wanted before Annual Conference. All contributions will be given to the FACES Food Pantry. You’ll find a collection in in the sanctuary.
