To make monetary donations: make a check payable to Peace UMC and specify "Meal Assistance Program" or M.A.P.  All food items that Peace purchases are on sale or purchased at a discount rate negotiated with Publix and other stores. We black out the UPC code on the labels so food cannot be returned and exchanged alcohol or tobacco.

Peace UMW toured the Orlando Union Rescue Mission and bring men's suits as a donation.
