Mission: Back to School

Be part of students' and teachers' successful starts to their 2019-20 school year!

4 ways to help:
1. Make a financial contribution to UMW's annual backpack project. 

Each $10 donation provides one backpack to a student through Network of Community Ministries, FUMCR's Children First school partnerships, or FUMCR's Read with Me program. Donations may be made in the offering plate during July with the comment "Backpacks" or online by July 31 at fumcr.com/givenow, by selecting "Backpacks" under "Give to...." 

2. Donate school supplies for our partner schools.
