As you know, the Food Pantry and Clothes Closet have merged with the Outreach House. Naturally, these are still very important ministries to our congregation and many of us want to financially support these vital services.
While we are preparing a new location the Food Pantry and the Clothes Closet will remain at FUMC.
The Food Pantry is open:
Monday, Wednesday and Friday 9 – 11:45 a.m. and Wednesday 5 – 6 p.m.
The Clothes Closet is open:
Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 – 11:45 a.m.
As a result of the transition and change in management, FUMC is no longer processing monetary donations or making deposits of these funds. Any checks for the Lombard-Villa Park Food Pantry or FUMC Clothes Closet will be returned to you.
Going forward, all financial donations are handled and acknowledged by The Outreach House. Please make checks payable to Outreach House and send them to Outreach House, 220 South Main Street, Lombard or donate online at www.theoutreachhouse.org Be sure to write Food Pantry or Clothes Closet on the memo line if you would like to designate your donation.
Financial donations specifically to support the food pantry can also be made online at www.solvehungertoday.org Be sure to put “For Agency Credit for The Outreach House 1369A” in the memo/comment section. The Food Pantry gets most of their food from the Food Bank and can acquire $8 worth of groceries for every $1.
We also welcome food donations and are in particular need of pasta, rice, tuna, peanut butter, jelly, pancake mix, syrup, canned meals (chili, spaghettios, pork and beans, beef stew etc.) hearty soups, canned fruits and vegetables, mac and cheese. Donations can be dropped off any time the food pantry is open.
Clothing donations can be dropped off when the Clothes Closet is open.
Diapers and infant items can be dropped off at 24 W. Ash Street on Monday, Wednesday and Friday 9 – 11:45 a.m. and Wednesday 5 – 6 p.m.
