school supplies collection

This year is HUMC’s tenth year collecting school supplies for our sister church, Olivet UMC, in their mission to reach out and encourage their neighbors. Normally, the collection begins during VBS and continues during August. Clearly, this year it will not be possible to collect by our usual means. However, we know that the need is even greater than normal with the ongoing shutdown of businesses and high unemployment rates. Our brothers and sisters in the Olivet neighborhood are among those hit the hardest by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Missions Committee has determined we can still fulfill our mission with Olivet by purchasing School Supply Kits. The cost for each kit is $35. Those who wish to participate in this important mission can do so by making a donation online. Our online donation system is completely safe; none of the information you enter on the form will leave HUMC except that required to verify your payment information with the card issuer (like any other online transaction). Donations should be completed by Friday, September 11. If you have any questions, please contact Sandy Usher via email.
