What & How to Donate

Food Pantry

Each month, Manchester UMC works with our partner agencies in collecting much needed items for their clients, as well as the United Methodist Committee on Relief, UMCOR.

After seeing and hearing about the troubling events unfold in Ukraine, many have reached out and expressed a desire to help our neighbors as they struggle to find safety for themselves and their families. In response to these requests, below is information on how to give to United Methodists Committee on Relief, UMCOR.

The physical donated items will be distributed to the local partner agencies: LifeWise StL, Circle of Concern and Epworth Children and Family Services.


This month, the following items will be collected in the Missions Collection Bins, located by the church office.
