Did you know that Bed Start needs help from people serving every week? And did you know that they need more help than just delivering beds on Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings? Regardless of your activity level, Bed Start could use your help. Here’s when they need help and information on the type of help they need.
- Every Wednesday Evening: 5pm
Provide delivery on Wednesday evenings. Meet in the parking lot directly across the street from the church. All Wednesday night deliveries occur near the church.
- Every Saturday Morning: 7:45m-Noon (meet in the parking lot at 7:45am, depart CRUMC at 8am)
Provide Pick-up and Delivery help on Saturday mornings. Meet in the parking lot directly across the street from the church. Deliveries are made around Collin County. A pick-up truck/trailer is helpful, but not required.
Having a servant’s heart and helping with Bed Start has no age limit. Youth and children are welcome to join us! If you can love on families and have a strong heart for showing kindness to someone we are serving than we want your help. You don’t need a strong back to be able to help.
Monetary donations are also welcome to purchase beds and bedding. Donate online here, through Push Pay or make checks payable to Custer Road UMC, indicate Bed Start on the memo line, and place checks in the Offering Plate or send them to the church office.
We are in need of various items for donation. If you have any of these items, please bring them to the Bed Start donation area across the street from Custer Road UMC in the parking lot on any Saturday from 8am-11am. Please DO NOT leave items in the Mission Donation Area.
Items we are greatly in need of:
- Dressers/Chests of Drawers
- Beds – Twin & Full Size
- Kitchen Dinette sets
- Utensils/Pots & Pans-any household item
Bed Start provides beds, other furniture and household items to families in need. Gently used donations of items are always needed.
