Family Food Basket (Ffb) Update!
Please continue to pray for this ministry. We are serving approximately 160 needy families each month. At the present time, we could use the following items: corn, green beans, carrots, green peas, mixed veggies, (all canned foods), eggs, bread, and milk. If you would like to volunteer at the food bank, please contact Rebecca Dew at 291-0093 or firstname.lastname@example.org). It is such a blessing to serve others! Thank you for your faithful support!
The Family Food Basket (FFB) continues its mission to help the nutritionally challenged in our area. 2020, although a challenging year, was a good overall year for the FFB. Over the year, 1,741 families and 4,778 individuals were served, and 19 of those receiving financial assistance estimated at $1,530. Financially, due to donations and grants, the FFB starts the new year in good shape. Thank you notes were sent to 2020 contributors to express our appreciation for all sources of assistance.
The Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC in Raleigh continues to provide grocery products that are augmented by local donations. Any donations of food (meat, vegetables, and fruit) can be used as well as grocery bags and other items. The Food Bank recently received a transformational gift via a trust in the amount of 25 million dollars! This ensures that the Food Bank can continue serving the eastern NC needs.
Please continue to keep this area ministry in your prayers and donate when possible. This can be done directly to the FFB location at Stott's crossroads outside Sims (6321 Old Raleigh Rd., Sims, NC) or leave it at the BUMC office. Checks may be sent to BUMC marked for donation to the FFB. The phone number is 252-291-0093 and doors are open each Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Donations are tax-deductible. If you are aware of any grants that may benefit the FFB, please call us to make us aware. Protocols are being followed to protect volunteers as well as clients during pickup and deliveries.
This ministry needs all the local churches and all their members to work together to continue this important community service. Please be generous with your money as well as your time; sign up to work 1 or 2 days a month. Volunteers are always welcome on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Call Rebecca at the FFB number above for more information.

Nash County Senior Meals Program
If you are looking for a place to Volunteer, prayerfully consider volunteering one day a month to help deliver meals for the Nash County Senior Meals Program.
The Bailey United Methodist Church is the drop-off zone for the meals. The program is designed to help qualified citizens who can no longer stand and cook.
If you want to make a difference in someone's life, this may be the Program for you. Our clients are very appreciative of the visits from the volunteers and of the food they receive.
Please call 235-4576 at the church office and talk with our office manager, Catherine or call Penny Jackson at 235-4840.
If you are looking for a place to serve in the church that only occurs once a month, please consider serving in the Fellowship Cafe. We are in need of someone who loves and enjoys greeting and serving people. If this fits your personality, and you want to enhance your day, this is the place for you. It is not hard and only occurs once a month. Please contact Penny Jackson to inquire. You will never be the same after you use this time to fellowship with other believers and serve them "good food".
