SHIM Food Packing is Tuesday, 4-5-2022 at 6:30 PM

Posted on Apr 3 2022 - 11:34pm

As a way of thanking CUMC for being our Chartered Organization, we help them pack the food collected for SHIM by the church every month. This activity was suspended last year because of COVID. We have re-started boxing food that were collected by CUMC for SHIM. If enough scouts and adults show up, we are done in about half an hour. This is a very good way of earning service hours and also showing our appreciation to CUMC. Please consider helping out at this activity on Tuesday at 6:30 pm before our meeting. It will be held in the hallway (enter by the door to go to the gym).

Reminder: Meeting on Tuesday, 3-29-2022 is at the Christian Life Center (CUMC Gym)
