Community Outreach -- Help Needed

4/8/2022 4:08 pm

Community Outreach Opportunity

Mays Chapel United Methodist Church (MCUMC) partners with MCES to provide weekend meals to families dealing with food-insecurity.


The program is called FELT (Feeding Empty Little Tummies) and currently serves 12 families.


TeamGantt provides a monthly donation to support this program and off set some of the cost  Unfortunately, due to rising prices, this is not covering as much as it previously had.


MCUMC will gladly accept donations at anytime in a bin located outside its front doors. This is an ongoing effort led entirely by volunteers, so there’s no urgency. Food or monetary donations will be accepted on an on-going basis. This partnership has no religious affiliation and there are no barriers to entry.


Please reach out to Meredith Reynolds with any questions. meredith.bray.reynolds@gmail.com
