United Ministries wishes to thank several member churches, as well as community partners and agencies for helping us to spruce up the office!
It all began in February when members of First United Methodist Church asked if they could come paint and help us out during their Great Day of Service. Well, naturally, we said yes! We got in touch with Greg and Lynn Schweigert over at The Paint Mart on Fairfield, and they helped us out with colors and paint – Greg, Lynn and the rest of The Paint Mart staff were awesome to work with and are just top notch!
The First Church volunteers did an amazing job and we began to see a new office taking shape!
A few months later, we experienced some water damage from the flooding on June 9. With more help from The Paint Mart, along with some great volunteers from Cokesbury United Methodist Church and Northminster Presbyterian Church, we ripped up some damaged carpet, and painted the floors and a few more walls in the office.
Further, we received donations of filing cabinets from American Fidelity Life Insurance, ceiling tiles from Armstrong World Industries, and phenomenal support and assistance from United Way and Manna Food Pantries. We live in a generous and caring community, and we are so grateful to be a part of it! Thanks to these wonderful community partners for so much care and help!
