EChO LUNCH PROGRAM
DONATIONS NEEDED!
 
Five churches agreed to take part in preparing meals for EChO volunteers and clients, and each have been providing soup September through May, one week per month since 2010.  It is amazing that dedicated volunteers from Evergreen Lutheran Church, Bergen Park Church, Church of the Transfiguration, Rockland Community Church and Congregation Beth Evergreen, with the support of their congregations have kept this going.  For 39 weeks a year a volunteer brings to the EChO office 4 to 5 gallons of home made soup to be served from a crock pot to anyone who comes to their door.  This year EChO wants to extend this ministry to the summer months with either salads or sandwiches that will feed approximately 160 hungry mouths each week. 

As part of the Missions team, UMCE has signed up to make lunches the weeks of June 25-28, July 23-26 and August 20-23 for the EChO volunteers and hungry visitors to the food bank. T his is where we could use some financial help to purchase the ingredients for these meals over the three weeks of our responsibility. Right now members of our prep team are Jan Thurling, Clyde Sacks, Karen Olson, Alice Slanec,  Debby Humphrey and Ruthanne Huber.

There will be a donation basket available each Sunday with prayers for your help in this mission. If you write a check, please clarify the intended use for EChO lunch program.
 
Thank you!

UMCE's food prep volunteers made their first meal for EChO lunches this Wednesday. The church office received a call saying "it was the best lunch EChO had ever served." Thank you volunteers! 

This Sunday's Communion Offering is for EChO. Please give to this wonderful mission work!
