Donations for Respite Center


In response to requests from Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins and the Dallas Office of Welcoming Communities and Immigrant Affairs, Faith Forward Dallas at Thanks-Giving Square, a collaborative convening of many of the area’s multi-faith clergy and non-profit organizations has brought together the volunteer resources necessary to respond to help our border cities handle the overwhelming influx of legal asylum seekers by acting as intake and respite centers, compassionate caregivers, and expediters/facilitators of their travel.

Oak Lawn UMC is serving as the local Respite Center and is collecting items needed by the asylum seekers as they travel from El Paso to their final destinations in the US. Immediate needs include:
- Men's shorts and pants (sizes small, medium, 28-34)
- Men's belts (sizes 28-34)
Bring your donations to FUMCR to be delivered to OLUMC.

Children's Activity Coordinator for Single Parent Action Network


Single Parent Action Network (SPAN) meets once a month for dinner and a program. While the parents are in the program, the children are kept busy with crafts, playing in the Gym or on the playground. The Coordinator would plan and arrange for these activities and find Ministry Safe volunteers to help. Then next meeting is June 17th at 6:00 pm-8:00 pm. The current coordinator will not be in attendance and the need is immediate. Most meetings are the third Monday of each month with some adjustments to the second Monday for months when the holiday lands on the third Monday. The children range in age from elementary to high school and there are anywhere from 10-15 in attendance. SPAN serves the community as well as FUMCR members.
