With current shelter restrictions due to CoVid 19 there is a community of 25-50 homeless that are without shelter and food and St. Paul's UMC is working to fill this gap each and every day by providing a sack lunch. Working with the Watershed District and St. Paul's UMC, Epworth is looking for 4-5 members that are willing to volunteer on Wednesdays, throughout the summer months, to pack these lunches and set them on a table, making them available for this community for pick-up. Along with volunteers, monetary and bottled water donations are also being requested to help fund this project. The cost of these daily lunches is approximately $2 each.
This request came from our District office and is in partnership with other area Methodist churches who are providing daily volunteers, funds and water. All precautions are being taken to keep volunteers and those being served safe and well. Please contact Jennie Vancil, using the form below, if you are able to volunteer on any Wednesday from 8:30 until approximately 1 PM to pack lunches, set out, and clean up. Monetary donations should should state "Market Place" or "St. Paul's UMC" in memo and bottled water donations can be dropped off at Epworth.
