The UMW is preparing Christmas gift boxes of toiletries for the Red Bird Mission that provides aid to the Appalachian Mountain region. We are preparing 12 boxes for adults to Kentucky and in addition, we will be making boxes to deliver to adults and children in our local area. Last year we delivered 67 boxes locally along with our Christmas meals prepared in conjunction with MANNA. A sign- up sheet for items is in the Fellowship Hall, or if you would like to participate by sending a contribution towards the purchase of items, please drop a check in the offering plate made out to Shehawken UMW. Note at the bottom of the check that it is for Red Bird/MANNA Gift. Any items purchased can be placed in the prepared bins in the Sunday School/Music Room closet.
As you are shopping, keep in mind that the Red Bird Mission items will be packed in shoeboxes and the MANNA items will be in medium sized bags.
United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
