Missions & Fundraisers
September Mission: while we may have the opportunity in December to participate in the Southern Tier Mobile Pack (Feed Our Starving Children), we would like to collect funds to pass on to them to buy food items for the mobile pack. One meal costs $.24- so a little goes a long way! Please consider donating- make checks out to FUMC- Chenango Bridge and put Southern Tier Mobile Pack in the memo line.

The 4th Wednesday of each month we support the Men’s Rescue Mission on Whitney Avenue by delivering a PIZZA for the men to enjoy. Please call Donna and Tom James (607-648-7934) for additional information.
4th Sunday food donations are continuing to support CHOW as well as local food pantries. Please leave the food in the fellowship hall on the Missions Cart.
We have been supporting the St. Patrick’s Feeding and Clothing Ministry. One Thursday, they fed 47 families (1-8 people/family). We have had several parishioners and family members volunteer on Thursdays, 9:30- 12 PM. Make some sandwiches, pack some food, help unload the CHOW truck- volunteers are needed! Please contact Wes or Karen if you are interested in finding out more information.
Rolling suitcases. There are many homeless that need to carry all of their belongings in a suitcase. If you have a used, rolling suitcase that you would like to donate, please leave it in the Fellowship Hall. We will make sure it gets to an agency that will be able to distribute it!
