United Methodist Women 2019 Service Project

The United Methodist Women are collecting for Cumberland’s Emergency Shelter.

Each new resident receives a welcome box to let them know we are expecting and ready for them. The boxes are filled with different “comfort” items. Please consider helping us help them feel welcome. Everything belongs to the resident when they receive a box.

Sponsor a Welcome Box for $75 or fill a box with your friends, neighbors and small groups.

As we continue to collect and help support the Cumberland Children’s Home, there is a list on the UMW bulletin board with “tear-off” slips for specific items we are trying to collect.

  • A Sterilite storage box (12 gallons, 23 5/8 L x 18 5/8 w x 9 1/4h) these are easy to carry and store
