Thank your generosity toward this mission on our first Sunday of our collection.
First Church has partnered with Journey Disaster Response Team to be a collection drop off site to assist in the efforts needed to support and care for Afghan families at Fort McCoy WI. The community can place donations in the boxes located at First United Methodist Church, 919 60th Street, at the entrance to the Great Room on the 10th Avenue entrance Monday through Friday from 7am to 5pm and Sundays from 8 to 11:30am.
All items must be new, please no used items. Of the thousands of families that are coming to Wisconsin, 9% are under the age of three, and 60% are under 18 according to Rev. Deb Burkhalter, pastor at Winding Rivers UMC.
We need to act in a timely manner as the need is urgent. All donations will be brought to the Journey warehouse weekly to be sorted and transported to Fort McCoy.
Thank you for your support and prayers for these families.
First Church "Love in Action"
