    Top five ways to help UNY Mission Central HUB this summer

    July 8, 2019 / By UNY Communications

    It’s finally summer here in Upper New York (UNY). The rains have let off, the sun is shining, and the temperature has warmed up beautifully. We hope you are enjoying this season!

    While summer is a time of rest, renewal, and a whole lot of vacationing for Upper New Yorkers, our UNY Mission Central HUB is buzzing with hard work thanks to the UNY Director of Missional Engagement, Mike Block, and UNY Mission Volunteer Coordinator, MaryBeth Ingalls. These two dedicate their heart and time (even when not at work) to helping others…no matter what the weather is.

    Some of the major projects that Mike and MaryBeth engage in are wheelchair ramp building, mission trips with UMCOR and VIM, and collecting and assembling UMCOR cleaning, hygiene, and school kits right here at the HUB.

    While summer is a season when natural disasters aren’t as widespread as they are in the spring or fall, the sad news is that many people near and far are still in need of help from the past spring flooding and ongoing natural disaster occurrences.

    This time of year, when donations to the UNY Mission Central HUB are drying up, disaster relief demand hasn't. The UNY Mission Central HUB needs your help. Here’s how:

    1. Prayer—that is number one. Pray for the victims of natural disasters and their families. Pray for the workers and volunteers at all Mission HUBs and VIM teams across the nation. Pray for the many churches connecting and being the hands and feet of God. Pray for each other to be what God made us to be.
    2. Monetary donations—by giving monetary donations, the UNY Mission Central HUB can order UMCOR kit supplies at wholesale prices in bulk and save costs.
    3. Volunteer—donate your time to UNY Mission Central HUB. Bring your group in to assemble or verify kits.
    4. Volunteer for mission work.
    5. Take a class for ERT at the UNY Mission Central HUB.

    Thank you for your past and future support.
