We are thrilled to see our mission of "connecting God's resources with human need" in action. We get a lot of appreciation and thank you notes and wanted to share a few of them with you!
Thanks to YOU -- your support makes this all happen!
Thank you again for the wonderful supplies. The tissues, masks and children’s coats will all be used within the Nursing department for children in need from the West Shore School District. -West Shore School District
Children in South Central PA are clean, dry, and healthy because of the diapers that they receive. Parents and Caregivers are also less stressed and have can have better self-esteem as a result of having access to a reliable supply of diapers for their child(ren). – Healthy Steps Diaper Bank
Thank you for the books, hats, body wash, mask, and diapers and goggles. One family said it was so nice that someone thought of them without having to ask for a hand out. - PA Elks
Families were appreciative of the items that were received. Especially the cups and mugs. The diapers were appreciated by mothers who just gave birth as well as the coupons that come with them. It is amazing the joy in a child's eyes when they receive a new book. – Family Promise
Many here live well below the poverty level. The clothing bank provided thru Hopeful Things assure seasonal wear is available to all in need. – Hope UMC
Our family resource center is located in a school in which 98% of students are eligible for free and reduced lunch. Our families have communicated that these events provide items (hand wash, books, and sanitizer) that are sometimes difficult to pay for. – Community Progress Council
Thank you for the hot and cold packs, the sanitizer and the masks. They provide better hygiene and protection from the COVID-19 pandemic. – Valley Shade UMC
We seek to reach the youth and families of our community in fun and entertaining events. By giving away the toys and fun items we received from Mission Central, our number soared with many of our low income families who were looking for something they could bring their kids to that wouldn't cost them anything. We feel this may be the only connection to God and the church that many of these kids and youth ever receive. So, while they come for the toys and food, we do our best to share Jesus with them long with the other goodies. They might not realize it now, but Jesus is the most valuable thing that they receive at our events...our prayer is that one day they will know that! Thanks Mission Central for helping us to change young lives! - Geyer’s UMC
Thank you for the mattresses, hand sanitizer, wheel chairs and masks. Children and adults will be on clean mattresses. Sanitizer and masks will help to keep contagious diseases at bay. – American Foundation of Children with AIDS
Thank you for the bleach, sanitizer and cups with lids. We used them to care for homeless pets at shelters and help place them in forever homes. – Heavenly Paws
