Hygiene Kits for central's monday morning ministry

UMW continues to expand concepts of mission through our participation in the global ministries of the church and now in our unique surrounding communities. Beginning in April, we joined with the Monday Morning Ministry to provide hygiene kits for our unhoused neighbors on a continuous basis.

Kits should include:
- face towel
- soap
- deodorant
- toothpaste
- toothbrush
- hand sanitizer
- masks
- one-gallon "ziplock" bag.
Other items may be added, but all must be able to fit in the one-gallon bag. Please specify on the outside of the kit "Men" or "Women."

The kits may be dropped off at the church during operational hours or by contacting Julie Gordon for additional drop off times.

All support is welcomed in the Kingdom of God! Please join us in donating kits.

Tell Your Representative: Take Federal Action to Help End School Pushout!

Click here to take action.

Show your support for the federal Ending PUSHOUT Act! As United Methodist Women members and friends, we are called to do all we can to interrupt the school-to-prison pipeline. Children of color, especially, are far too often targets of broken and biased systems. We know that racial disparities are rampant, with Black girls about six times as likely to be suspended as white girls. [Learn more]
