BLUE STAR MOTHERS SOLDIER BOXES
Each Fall the members of First UMC collect items to send to our soldiers overseas. In addition to donations of items, volunteers are needed to help prepare the boxes for mailing.
ANGEL TREE GIFTS
Every December members are encouraged to take a tag with the name of a child of an incarcerated parent and purchase Christmas gifts. Gift Tags are available the last week of November, and the gifts are due back by the second Sunday of December.
