EUMC Missions Committe members deliver donated goods to pantry

Wednesday, April 29, members of the Englewood United Methodist Church (EUMC) Missions Committee ventured out to gather and deliver much-needed supplies to the Englewood Helping Hand building (seen behind them in the photo). Eight area churches work with the organization’s Board of Directors to ensure its maintenance and success. The EUMC Committee encourages others to join them and a growing number of other groups and individuals in stepping up to donate goods and funds here that help local individuals and families who face unusual hardships these days. According to frontline worker Kim Bruemleve, Helping Hand Board of Directors member, on May 6, “We had a record day today upon serving 69 families and individuals within 5 hours!” Pantry stocking needs change almost weekly. Recently needed most has been soup, vegetables, peanut butter, jelly, condiments, dry or canned pasta, tomato sauce and products, toilet paper, and soap. Other foods frequently needed are tuna and canned meats, canned vegetables, canned and dried beans, macaroni and cheese, rice, and cereal. Donated goods must be nonperishable and not packaged in glass. Small or medium sized items are best. Pop-top can lids are preferred, but not required. Food stamps do not cover essential taxable items such as household cleaning, towel and toilet paper, diapers and other baby products. Personal care products for laundry; bath, teeth and hair care; shaving, deodorant, and feminine hygiene are also needed. Hours of office operation are currently shortened temporarily due to the current crisis. Until further notice, the reduced hours are 9:30am- 2:30pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays only. See Englewood Helping Hand, Inc. on Facebook or its website at www.englewoodhelpinghand.org for information about any changes or to donate. You may call the Helping Hand office at 474•5864 during office hours. If necessary, leave a message for a return call. Currently or any time, anyone needing information about what resources might be available to help address a problem or unmet personal need can telephone the national 2-1-1 program to investigate eligibility for and referral to other local assistance resources.
