2022 Ingathering

For our Fall mission project, SUMC will be collecting items to donate to the Midwest Mission Distribution Center (MMDC) in Illinois, and we will also be collecting money to send to the annual Mission Ingathering event.

Donations will be accepted anytime up until Sunday, October 30, 2022.  Please make checks payable to SUMC; note in the memo section of your check "Student Kits", "Heifer International", or "Blankets" or donate online by using the links provided.

Midwest Mission Distribution Center (MMDC)

Bring any items listed below for the Student Kit from now until the e end of October.  There are labeled bins available in the church entryway for you to place your donation items or make a monetary donation here.
 

Items must be new and unused:

  • Notebooks - 1 subject spiral 8x10.5"

  • Rulers - 12" long with metric measurements

  • Wooden Pencils - unsharpened

  • Hand Pencil Sharpeners

  • Erasers - 2" or larger

Midwest Mission distributes its kits, resources, and supplies after receiving a request. The supplies are sent locally, nationally, and internationally to those in need during times of crisis. All supplies are given free of charge regardless of gender, race, or religion.

 

Midwest Mission connects with local aid organizations by redirecting items that are received that do not meet kit requirements.

 

Midwest Mission is one of eight cooperating depots in the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) Supply Network. Midwest Mission distributes UMCOR supplies in response to disasters within the United States.

 

Midwest Mission is able to do so much work and make donations go further through the many partnerships it has with other non-profits and the U.S. Southern Command.

Heifer International

We are collecting money for Heifer International and welcome your donations.  You can mail/drop off your donations at the church or donate online here.  Gifts to Heifer International are given with the intention of "Passing on the Gift", meaning recipients of animals promise to pass on the offspring of their animal to someone else in need.

Heifer International works to end hunger and poverty in partnership with the communities they serve.  Their program support entrepreneurs around the world, creating lasting change from the ground up.

It begins with a seed investment in livestock or agriculture, followed by mentorship to help project participants build a business, and ultimately gain access to supply chains and markets.

These families are able to earn a living income and continuously lift up their communities as they train the next generation of leaders.  By supporting and training the world's farmers, ranchers, and female business owners, Heifer International is investing in a new breed of success.
