During these unprecedented times, we are grateful for your continued support of Monona UMC. Since we will not be passing the offering plate up and down the pews of the sanctuary for a few weeks, this is another thing that might have to be modified. Those of us who give by electronic fund transfer (EFT) will not need to change anything. The rest of us can use the old-fashioned mail system (remember the US Postal Service?) which still works quite well. (Monona United Methodist Church, 606 Nichols Road, Monona, WI 53716). One time electronic donations can be made using the Donate Now button on the bottom of the page. Our ministries will continue and we value your faithful giving. Thank you so much!
JUNE MISSION OF THE MONTH: The Atwood Pantry
The Atwood Pantry is a Personal Essentials Pantry Partner founded in 2006. The Pantry express love for our neighbors by providing tangible gifts for personal and household hygiene.
Did you know? Over 11% of Dane County households are living in poverty. Wisconsin Food Share does not cover the purchase of paper products, soap, household supplies, grooming items, toothpaste, etc. The Atwood Pantry helps provide these items, which can add up to 25-35% of an average grocery bill.
Our focus is the products essentials for personal and household hygiene. We do not provide food; we provide the other stuff you need that food stamps don't cover -- toilet paper, laundry soap, deodorant, diapers, shampoo, etc. All in need are welcome. Pantry service hours are Wednesdays from 4:00-6:00pm, Thursdays from 11:30 am until 3:00 pm and Sunday from noon 2:00 pm, ONLY. No guest service is provided at other times, although we are open for donations and/or questions.
For further information, feel free to call us at 608-772-3146, or check out the PEPartnership, Inc., website at http://pepartnership.net
Please consider helping this agency continue its work in our community. Please mark your check, envelope or electronic giving “The Atwood Pantry”.
SECOND HARVEST NEEDS VOLUNTEERS
Volunteers are ESSENTIAL to Second Harvest Foodbank. And, Second Harvest Foodbank is ESSENTIAL to the community. We are in need of volunteers to help us fill pre-packed Care Boxes. Volunteer shifts are available throughout the day, 7 days a week. Click here to learn more.
Care Boxes are filled with healthy foods, and are being distributed to those struggling with hunger through our partner agencies and our mobile pantries throughout our 16 county service area. An average of 2,600 boxes are being distributed per day! We need volunteer support to assist in packing these boxes.
We are committed to keeping our staff and volunteers safe by limiting the number of volunteers during shifts as well as adding new measures to maintain a clean and healthy environment.
