OUTREACH Drive:  School Uniforms for Youth

OUTREACH wants to donate school uniforms for 25 youth in local public schools:

The uniforms will be purchased by the Outreach Team with the monetary donations toward this effort.

Two current opportunities to help through special giving:

1. UMCOR Special Giving Sunday: March 27
One Great Hour of Sharing

Offerings on this special giving Sunday cover the costs of doing business for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief). They allow UMCOR the ability to promise that all other donations given through the year can be applied toward the donated mission, and the United Methodist Church’s compassionate response to human suffering in places throughout the world can continue.

When and wherever the next crisis occurs somewhere in the world, UMCOR will be ready to respond, and 100% of your giving then will go to serve those affected.

How to give: You may mail your check to the church, noting “UMCOR” on the memo line, with your envelope number (if you have one). To give online, go to the NUMC Online Giving page, and type in “UMCOR Sunday” under “Other Donations.”
Thank you for your support of the vital work of UMCOR!

2. Lenten Offering

This year’s Lenten Offering will go to Jewish Family Services to support Afghan refugees who are being resettled here in Delaware.

You may mail your check to the church, noting “Lenten Offering” on the memo line, with your envelope number (if you have one).  To give online, go to the NUMC Online Giving page.  Look for “Lenten Offering” on the donate page.
