UMCOR Clean Up Buckets Needed! Looking for a great way to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey/Irma? Why not make a clean-up bucket!

Please consider making and donating a Clean Up Bucket!

Salvation Army is in need of someone to pick up bread from Panera Bread every Wednesday just before they close at 9:00 pm. Bread can then be delivered to Major Doris (who lives on Sugarloaf Avenue) or the Salvation Army the next morning. There is a sign-up sheet in the social hall. Our hope is to get several folks to sign up and they may only have to go once a month or even once every other month.
