Your donations are needed to help us provide Welcome Kits for the newly admitted youth at the Murphy-Harpst Children’s Center. Often these youth arrive with very few possessions.  The Welcome Kits contain personal hygiene items that help meet the children’s basic needs and also boosts their self-confidence and well-being.

The CFUMC Mission Committee is collecting personal care items during September and October. Contributions can be in the form of complete kits packed in plastic shoe box containers or as individual items from the list below.

Financial contributions can be made through the Sunday offering or through the church office. (Mark checks for “Murphy-Harpst Welcome Kits.”) 

WHERE TO LEAVE ITEMS: Place donations in the donation barrel marked “Murphy-Harpst Welcome Kits” located near the Welcome Center in the narthex.

DEADLINE TO DONATE: September through October 2019
