With current shelter restrictions due to COVID-19, there is a community of homeless families and individuals that are without shelter and food. St. Paul’s UMC in partnership with the Maumee Watershed District and other area Methodist churches, including Epworth, is working to fill this gap each and every day by offering a well-balanced sack lunch. Epworth is providing 4-5 volunteers each Wednesday, throughout the summer months, to pack lunches and then distribute in St. Paul’s UMC parking lot, 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. 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, 9am-12:30pm to pack lunches, set out, and clean up. Monetary donations should state “Market Place” or “St. Paul’s UMC” in the memo and bottled water donations may be dropped off at Epworth during normal business hours. MANY THANKS to those that have already volunteered and contributed to this worthwhile ministry!
