United Methodist Children’s Services, one of our Health and Welfare Ministries, is collecting backpacks and school supplies for the 250 children that live at UMCS. They are especially in need of backpacks for the children. Donations can be brought by the UMCS office, 3940 W. Lisbon Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53208, Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Please bring donations to UMCS by August 15th if possible. Churches and individuals outside of the Milwaukee area who are interested in helping can either send funds directly to UMCS, or purchase backpacks and other school supplies through their Amazon wish list, and those donations will come directly to UMCS. If you do purchase through Amazon, don’t forget to use Amazon Smile and designate UMCS as your nonprofit of choice—your purchases will benefit UMCS in more ways than one!
