Each year, UMOM outfits 600 kids and teens with what they need to be successful students this new school year. They make sure each student has all the school supplies they need to be successful and work to provide backpacks, uniforms and shoes for all. Please look at their Back to School Drive flyer to learn more about specific school supplies needs this year.
Borderlands hosts a monthly produce distribution event at Aldersgate United Methodist Church where families can purchase 70lbs of rescued produce for $12. In this time of increased unemployment and food insecurity, this ministry is critical for the neighborhood. If you are healthy and looking for a chance to serve, please consider joining us Saturday, June 20 at 5:30am at Aldersgate United Methodist Church (3530 N. 32nd St, south of Indian School) to help sort produce, pack boxes and load cars! Please bring a mask and gloves if you have them. Email Amy for more information.
Dayspring will “host” Family Promise the week of July 26, but instead of staying on our campus, the families are staying at the Day Center in Scottsdale during the pandemic and will be there until at least October. We will receive a list of food needs on July 13 and will then create a sign up genius to share with our community. You can sign up to bring an item/s, or you can make a monetary donation.  Family Promise has been added to the drop down on the app for monetary donations. Should you choose to provide needed food, food donations will be collected at the gate at Dayspring in a socially distanced drive thru from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, July 26. Thank you for your continued support of this program!
