Custer Road United Methodist Church has committed to intentionally building trusted relationships in CRUMC’s neighborhood through partnership with local schools and collaborate with Christie and Thomas Elementary Schools, both Title 1 schools where many of their students are in financial need.
The Social Worker at both schools and who we work with a lot recently reached out to ask if we could sponsor 50 families between the 2 schools, some who live in the Spring Creek Village trailer park. Our Mission Advisory Council met and felt like this was important for us to do to continue our relationship building and serving our neighbors, especially in this time of need. Each student will have a packet with family information and needs (items and gift cards).
Packets can be picked up on Sunday, November 8 at the table in The Commons and on Saturday November 14 and Sunday, November 15 at the Alternative Gift Market. If you can’t sponsor an entire family, but would like to contribute toward sponsorships, please donate to CRUMC online or by check and indicate Family Sponsorships.
All of these families live below the poverty level and desperately need our help. If you have any questions, are interested in sponsoring a family but can’t get to the church on any of those days, please contact Laura Farley at firstname.lastname@example.org .
