Cell Phone Donations

 At our District meeting this past month, it was announced that in 2017, the Center for Prevention of Abuse had received over 800 cell phones from our District UM churches.  I think it’s amazing that almost 100 of those phones were from our Morton church!  Right now, I have 20 phones ready to deliver, so we’re off to a good start for 2018.  You can drop them off in the gathering area at the church in a box labeled for phone   donations.  The Center wipes them clean and programs them for 911 calls only.  They are then distributed to women for use in emergencies.  What a good way to recycle your old cell phones.

Food Boxes for the Ridge:

This year we are donating 25 food boxes for the Ridge.  We have asked the area churches that provide meals at the Ridge to donate specific food items.  Now we hope that you can help us provide the rest of the food items.  There is a sign-up sheet on the west wall in the gym as well as a box/barrel close by to put the items in.  Feel free to sign up for all 25 of one item or as many as you want.  We like to have the same size of food items in each box, so the sign-up sheet lists specific sizes.  You don’t need to purchase name brands.  For instance, Walmart’s “great value” is usually a little cheaper and would be fine.  If you prefer to donate money, please leave your donation in the office, place in Sunday Offering, or give to Linda or Sarah.  If you have a check, make your check out to the Morton UMC and mark it for the Ridge food boxes.  We would like all donations in by Wednesday, November 13.  We will be delivering the boxes on Tuesday, November 26, the same evening we will be cooking the meal.  If you have any questions, please contact Linda Clauser (357-0449) or Sarah Losey (645-6217).  Thank you for your continued support of this outreach.
