Giving Opportunity!  

 

We have been offered a MATCHING financial gift of $5000!  

 

The donor is giving the congregation this gift for the 2020 Operating Budget.  In order for us to receive this gift, we must match it.  Your matching gift must be ABOVE your normal giving/pledge.  When we have matched it, we can use the Gift to allow us to continue as a Church and provide the needed ministries that we provide.  Matching gifts are a wonderful way to DOUBLE your giving, and we are very grateful. 

 

If 50 people give and extra $100, we will have matched this gift.  This is a very

do-able challenge and you are invited to support our congregation by giving a little extra this spring.   

 

We are grateful for the generosity of this gift, and we pray that this generosity will inspire all of us!  

Douglas Community UMC Food Pantry Needs

 

Food Pantry Hours!

Wednesdays:  2:00 to 4:00 P.M. 

Fridays:  2:00 to 4:00 P.M.

 

Based on the needs of our current clients, we have noticed that some of what we’ve been stocking is not usable because our clients do not have access to kitchen facilities, etc.  They are homeless and are unable to heat or cook food. We have revised our needs lists to reflect these changes, based on their requests. 

 

  • Canned protein: (Tuna, Spam, Chicken, Turkey, salmon, etc. Pouches work well, too.)
  • Canned meals (Beef Stew, Spaghetti, Ravioli, mac and cheese; the pop-top cans work the best)
  • We always need dry cereal and canned fruit
  • Peanut Butter (small jars)
  • Canned soup
  • Crackers
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned fruits & applesauce, or fruit cups
  • Packets of Oatmeal
  • Milk (canned & dry or shelf-stable)
  • Ramen noodles or Cup o' noodles
  • Granola  or protein bars
  • Small jars of Mayonnaise (to go with the tuna)
  • Bread, hot dog buns
  • Canned or jarred Pasta Sauce
  • Pasta noodles or macaroni

We have a freezer in the Food Pantry and we can accept the following items for distribution:

  • Fresh Bread
  • Rolls
  • Buns
  • Cheese
  • Small Packages of Stew Meat
  • Chicken
  • Ground Meat
  • Lunch Meats
  • Fish
  • Hot Dogs  

The Southeast Food Bank, where we shop weekly, is sometimes low on food and we will need supplement elsewhere.  Any and all donations of food are appreciated; we cannot accept or distribute food that has expired or food that has been opened, repackaged, home canned or preserved.

If you are unable to shop, monetary donations are accepted, as well.  Just click on one the "donate" buttons throughout this website.  Thanks in advance for your generosity!
