Could you give an hour or two to help those in need here in Durham? Here are some opportunities for helping those who come to Urban Ministries in need of food and clothing.
In addition to the food items we already collect, there is a need for the following items:
I am working on getting people to help sort and stock the clothes closet. This is done in the afternoon and we can decide when we want to go. If you are interested please let me know and I’ll add your name to the list and find a time that suits us.
Thank you for your continuing support for Urban Ministries and all the hungry and homeless people of Durham.
We would like to thank our team of dedicated walkers, especially Peggy, who appeared as PUMCy the dragon for the entire 4.8 mile walk. Way to go!!
You can still donate to CROP in support of the team.
If you would like to donate online, you can visit our team gift page on the Church World Service Website.
You may also, write a check to PUMC and mark CROP Walk on the “for” line.
