Seneca Street United Methodist Church 

Seneca St church is located in one the less fortunate areas of Buffalo. We support them throughout the year with food donations, school supplies, preparing fellowship dinners as well as some financial help. 

Red Bird Mission

This mission provides essential needs and daily care items to a central  location in Kentucky, They are then distributed to places in need throughout the country. 

This year the Mission Team at Endwell United Methodist Church will again coordinate the collection and delivery of shoeboxes for the Red Bird Mission.

In December of 2021 four volunteers drove two 26-foot trucks to the mission in Kentucky. They transported over 2,700 shoeboxes, over 120 sheet sets adn bedspreads, as well as books, school supplies and cleaning products.

 The need is even greater this year. The mission center was spared from the flooding this year, but they gave many needed supplies to surrounding communities to help in their recovery.

The goal this year is collect over 3,500 shoeboxes and other supplies. We will be the hub for the shoe box collection again this year. The Enwell's truck will pick them up usually the week before Thanksgiving.  See Bonnie, our secretary, if you would like a plastic shoebox with a lid.


Things needed for the adult Shoeboxes:

Comb, brush, shampoo, hand lotion, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, ChapStick, full size bar of soap, washcloth, disposable razors, shaving cream, nail care supplies, socks, work gloves or mittens, winter hat or scarf.

Things needed for the children’s Shoeboxes:

We would like the items in a clear plastic shoe-box size containers with a locking lid.  Please do not wrap the boxes

The Mission also needs:

To cover the cost of truck rental and fuel, lodging and food for our volunteers they are asking a donation of $1.50. Do not put the money in the box. Put the money in an envelope and attach it to the box

 

UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief)

Here at Asbury we collect for UMCOR on a regular basis. Most of the time we put together flood buckets for disaster relief. They are stored in a warehouse in Syracuse and distributed where and when needed.

5th Sunday Collections

When there is a 5th Sunday in a month we have a dedicated cause to which we donate. Recently we collected for the Ukrainian people in need. Some of our other donations have gone to the foundations for muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, and cystic fibrosis.

We are always open to suggestions for future donations.
