The Boxtops for Education Program is changing! The newer boxes in the store tell us there is no more clipping! We will need to download the Boxtops mobile app and scan our receipt with our smartphone when we have purchased General Mills products. The proof value (10 cents each) will go directly to the school, Red Bird Christian School in Beverly, KY. Please choose this school when you do the one time registration online. Register and read more at www.btfe.com.
There are still printed proofs on some boxes in stores. We will continue to collect the printed proofs. Kindly put any you have promptly in collection boxes at District or Conference events or trim them closely and mail to Red Bird Christian School, 70 Queendale Center, Beverly, KY 40913-2416. Learn more about Red Bird at www.rbmission.org.
Our UMW distributes monetary gifts to Harbor House Crises Shelter in Superior, Red Bird Mission in Beverly, KY, United Methodist Children’s Services, and Northcott Neighborhood House in Milwaukee.
Hats and Mittens continue to be donated in many places of need in our area and beyond. Thanks for donations of fleece, yarn, and purchases of items to fund the project.
Hygiene Kits are being collected and assembled for homeless men and women. Gently used handbags and men's carry on size bags are needed along with items to fill them. A full list of these items can be found in the 'shopping lists' by the collection bins. Judy Schroeder, is the contact person if you have items for this project. Big thanks!
We collect RX medicine bottles for one of the Free Clinics in Milwaukee that is staffed by Marquette medical, nursing, and pharmacy students. They cannot use over the counter bottles, or large 5” high bottles. They prescribe small amounts of medicine at a time. We send bottles absolutely clean, inside and out, so whatever you can do to help with that process is greatly appreciated. The clinic we support is the "Bread of Healing" clinic in Cross Lutheran Church at 1821 N. 16th Street in Milwaukee.
Friends of Patricia meets regularly first Tuesday of each month from 9am - 2pm. Potluck lunch will be shared at noon.
We continue to make reusable sanitary pads for girls and women in Africa, we have branched out to include making items of many kinds for those in need, here at home and overseas. This fun group is not just SUMC members, so please spread the word and come join us. Everyone is welcome. Since our projects are so varied, many tasks have nothing to do with a sewing machine!Here is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy friendship and contribute to the needs of others!We also will gratefully accept monetary and material support, to keep this mission going. If you have materials that might be useful, please call the office (920) 434-1168 for further information.
