Veterans in our community are often in need of assistance with basic toiletries, household products, and clothing for job search. We collect these items and deliver them to the United Methodist Community Centers in downtown Youngstown (139 E. Boardman Street) or in Warren at First United Methodist Church on 309 N. Park Ave.)
These centers offer a variety of services to veterans in need of assistance and this is one way we can help them with this ministry.
In conjunction with the United Methodist Community Center, our Social Global team collects Hygiene and Household products for our local Vets on four patriotic holidays during the year: Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day.
We accept donated items for this program throughout the year. You can place them in the DROP-OFF BIN located outside the Nursery in the Narthex/Lobby area.
Hygiene Products: Family Sized Toiletries, Tooth Paste, Tooth Brushes, Shampoo/Conditioner, Deodorant, Hand Soap, Sanitizer, Shower Gel/Bar Soap, Wash Cloths/Hand Towels, Body Lotion, Comb & Brush Sets, Men’s Neck Ties, Men’s Dress Shirts: All Sizes, Women’s Blouses: M-L
Household Products: Paper Towels, Toilet Paper, Laundry Detergent, Dish Soap
Collection Dates are set for the two Sundays preceding each of these holidays:
