Women Suplement Summer Lunches (6/2019)

Posted by on Jun 6, 2019 in EventAnnouncement, Mission: AroundTowns, UMW | 0 comments

The United Methodist Women are collecting toiletries that will be offered to Pitman residents as part of the First Presbyterian Church’s Summer Lunch Program. This is an excellent ministry where lunches are provided to children in the school district who may otherwise not have enough access to food during the summer when school is out.

To help the summer food situation that many families experience, Food Stamps (“SNAP”) can be used.  However, Food Stamps can’t be used for many other items which are also essential.  So the United Methodist Women are doing something about it.

 

Toiletries donated by PUMC will be available to families when they pick up their food each week. Needs include things like:

  • full-size toothpaste, toothbrushes
  • shampoo, soap
  • deodorant, razors
  • toilet paper
  • feminine hygiene products
  • sunscreen, bug spray

 Please put your donations in the bin in the Narthex.  Donations will be accepted until 16 June (Father’s Day). 

United Methodist Women-We make a difference!

Cereal:   There is a new way PUMC can help support the Presbyterian Church’s Summer Lunch Program! They are in need of 12-18 ounce boxes of healthier cereal options to provide families. Examples include: Cheerios, Kix, Special K, Raisin Bran, Cornflakes, granola, boxes of oatmeal packets, etc. We will be collecting cereal for the next two Sundays (6/9/19 and 6/16/19) in the Narthex.

Toiletries We could use more laundry detergent pods, sunscreen, and feminine products.
