UMW and GREEN Team collect Go-Bag items

go bag picAs we face a long, cold winter, the need for Go-bags given by the Newark Empowerment Center increases. To help address this need, the GREEN Team is again partnering with the United Methodist Women to facilitate collection of Go-bag items from now through December 4th (Winterfest/Greening of the Church). Below, you will find an alphabetical (by last name) breakdown of requested donations, but we’re also asking everyone to contribute a half-dozen (or more) pop-top protein meals, since this often is the greatest need.

Collection boxes will be available in Cokesbury Lobby, Heritage Hall, and in the Sunday school hallway (outside Room 211). Go-bags will be assembled by the UMW and the GREEN Team at the Winterfest/Greening event on Friday, December 4th.

A-F: Fruit juice pouches or boxes

G-K: Peanut butter or cheese snack cracker packs

L-P: Single-serve fruit bowls (peaches, applesauce, mixed fruit)

Q-T: Dessert (single serve pudding, cookies)

U-Z: Box of 15 or more gallon-size zip-top bags

Thank you for supporting this UMW/GREEN Team joint mision!
