A Weekend of Giving


Your comment = 1 canned good

This post is a prime example of actions being more important than words. Please ACT!!!!!

To celebrate World Food Day (Sunday, October 16) I am inviting YOU to get involved in a local food pantry without leaving the comfort of your own home.

For every comment added to this post from now until Sunday, October 16 at midnight, I will donate one (1) canned food item to the Helping Hands Food Pantry.

The Helping Hands Food Pantry is a local outreach ministry program at the First United Methodist Church in Joshua. It assists families, single-parent households, and senior citizens throughout the local community by providing canned and non-perishable food items, as well as toiletries and personal hygiene products. On average, more than 100 bags are distributed on a monthly basis.

The need is great and your assistance is appreciated. If you would like to become involved, please consider the following options:

  • visit UMCOR‘s website and donate to a specific mission (FYI: 100% of all donations given to UMCOR go to that ministry ……. none of those pesky administrative costs like some non-profit organizations!)
  • donate canned food or non-perishable food items to a food pantry in your own community
  • send me an email (nicole.m.hutchison at gmail dot com) if you would like to make a direct contribution to the Helping Hands Food Pantry at FUMC Joshua ~ there is also an opportunity to provide Thanksgiving Dinners to families in the Fort Worth, TX area through the United Community Centers. For $25, you can provide a traditional Thanksgiving dinner to a family in need.

There are LOTS of way to get involved and I encourage you to find a way that works for you. The holidays are soon approaching and the need continues to grow. Please don’t wait for the holidays or someone to ask for your help ….. ACT now!!!!!!!
