HELP FOR HELPING HANDS
April is FUMC’s month to help with grocery assistance at Helping Hands Food Pantry. On April 11 and April 25 volunteers are needed from 10:15-11:00 to unload the truck and 11:00-3:00 to sack and handout groceries. In addition, Maria Diminet, the foreign exchange student, is accepting pop cans, nonperishable food items and clothing at FUMC as fundraising for Helping Hands.
Throughout the year, many of you already support the congregation with your time, talent and financial contributions but greater participation is always welcome. We encourage you to look into our electronic giving program. It’s convenient for you and provides much-needed donation consistency for the church. Please contact the church office for details.
