The focus for the next four years of United Methodist Women is Interrupting the School to Prison Pipeline. ( The School to Prison Pipeline) There are several ways that we can support the children that are often found in the Pipeline.
Children in Foster Care are usually removed from their situation with only the clothes they are wearing. Other services can supply clothing, but as the children are moved from Foster home to Foster home, they usually are given a garbage bag to carry their belongings. Think about your feelings if your value was established as being worth of a garbage bag.
This summer the FSFUMC UMW will have a luggage drive for children. We are asking for luggage that you are not using, an appropriate size for a child to manage, in good condition—but not necessarily new. The Sunday School class used by Seekers will be used for storing the luggage and Janie Weber will pick it up and take it to DHS for distribution.
It does seem like a small idea, but all of us understand the power of knowing we are more valuable than carrying our lives in a garbage bag.
First Youth Summer Calendar
We will have an in-person VBS kickoff on Sunday, July 18th, where you can pick up your VBS Packet and T-shirt, along with tons of fun stuff for the kids to do! You won't want to miss out on this IN-PERSON event!
