Wellspring UMC, on the west side of Madison, began a missional giving/outreach program called 1Thing in the fall of 2017. Each month, they choose one thing to give to people in need in order to plant love in their community. The collection spot is at the front of the sanctuary, where items are blessed before delivery.

Their collection efforts so far have been donated to the Lussier Community Education Center and have totaled:

  • September: 287 rolls of toilet paper
  • October: 1,368 diapers
  • November: 75+ tubes of toothpaste; 100+ toothbrushes
  • December: 37 sets of underwear for boys; 85 for girls
  • January: 1,369 gallon size ziplock bags
