When COVID-19 sent us home, Kirkwood UMC Members pitched in from home to help others out!
Here's some of our current mission projects and how you can help.
Feed the need to be generous and help stop hunger in our local area by dropping off non-perishable food goods to Kirkwood UMC! The Food Pantry is an ongoing mission every week at the church with weekly collections going out to support one of the four local food banks we have partnered with: Kingdom House, Bellfontaine UMC, KirkCare, and the Kirkwood School District.
COVID-19 has dramatically increased the need for food. If you are able to share, please bring these most needed items to the outdoor mission dropbox:
- Dry Beans
- Canned Soup
- Canned Vegetables
- Canned Fruit
- Peanut Butter
- Vegetable Oil
- Macaroni & Cheese
To keep the shelves of KUMC's Pantry filled, and our donators safe we've put a dropbox out in front of the glass doors.
Hours for the dropbox are: 9am - 3 pm, Monday - Thursday.
Additional items needed at this time along with the non-perishables include:
- Paper Towels
- Hand soap
- Disinfectant Spray/Wipes
Hygiene kits with travel sized shampoo, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, face wipes, & deodorant are needed right now for Epworth Children and Family Services' homeless teen outreach program. Please donate any of these travel sized items to be made into kits or make complete kits all of these items, sealed in a ziplock bag ready to hand out.
Snack packs are also needed, that include non-perishables like canned tuna, chips, granola bars, bottled water, fruit snacks, etc. Please put any of these items or kits in the dropbox to get to Epworth as soon as possible to ensure these teens get nourishment.
