Every First Sunday of the month, we invite you to bring nonperishable food items to donate to families at UMOM New Day Centers.
We also invite you to bring new kitchen supplies to help families who recently moved into new housing, but need housewares. Each Next Step Housing Family Kitchen kit includes pots and pans, a kitchen utensil set (can opener, measuring cups/ spoons), a set of dishes, a set of cutting boards, kitchen knife, dish towels, cups, a mixing bowl, Tupperware and drinking glasses. Also needed are bath towels and washcloths. If you can donate any of these items, please bring them with you on the first Sunday of the month, label them “kitchen supplies” and place them in the blue bins as you enter the church campus from the bridges or south parking lot, and we’ll deliver them to UMOM.

Thank You from UMOM
“From all of us at UMOM and in particular from our residents, thank you so much for your generosity in providing what we call “kitchen kits.” As a family leaves UMOM, we try to get them set up with the essentials that they need, and our “kitchen kits” help immensely. Pots, pans, knives, forks, spoons, glasses, cooking utensils of all sorts are all things you and I take for granted, but things which our UMOM families don’t have and need. As usual, you all answered the call. THANK YOU AGAIN!” –– Dave Hepburn
Parson’s Village Breakast and Lunch Donations
We’re also collecting breakfast and lunch items to help feed children at UMOM’s Parson’s Village this summer. Peanut butter and jelly, sandwich bread, juice boxes, cereal, granola bars and more are needed. Please label your donations “Parson’s Village” and either place them in the blue bins on Sunday morning OR leave them in the church office during the week. Thank you!
