Giving & Service
Hygiene Kits for UMCOR: Monetary Donations Needed!
Thanks to everyone who helped assemble 100 hygiene kits for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief)! And a special thank you to Kaylie Grieger and Michelle Dillmann for procuring the items for the kits! Donations toward the cost of the kits are needed, and may be made payable to either Katonah UMC or Purdys UMC.
Table of Grace
The mission of Table of Grace is to offer nourishment to anyone who is hungry physically or spiritually, or both. If you can help any Saturday to prepare and/or distribute bag lunches (using supplies that are provided by the Hudson Valley Food Bank), contact Bonnie Hyatt at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are now serving bag lunches on the sidewalk outside the First UMC of Brewster until the winter months.
There's a girl named Heidi who comes to Table of Grace every week to get meals to take home to her family. Her mom is having a baby any day now! We are collecting diapers, wipes, and any other items you'd like to give. Please place your donation in the bin in the Katonah church parlor.
Please share this information with anyone who is in need:
