Totebags for Homeless Individuals

Totebags for Homeless Individuals

Each year, FUMCR provides totebags filled with toiletries, snacks, socks, hats, and gloves to individuals who are homeless. 2020 is no different, but our method will be. This year we have asked for:

  •  online financial contributions by Nov 22 in increments of $25 per bag (approx. 40% savings due to buying in bulk) and
  •  volunteers to come to the church to fill the bags with items that will be purchased in bulk.
