 School Children's Needs

 

Meadowview Elementary School: Emory UMC maintains a clothing closet including shoes, socks, underwear, play clothes, jeans, sweats, jackets,backpacks, and any other items the school nurse my suggest.

Glade Spring Middle School: Our church maintains a good supply of consumable materials such as paper, notebooks, binders, pencils, pens, rulers, backpacks, crayons, and any other needs identified by the guidance counselor and teachers. The school nurse has also made requests for various first aid and hygiene items. The needs continue and through the generosity of so many we have been able to supply all the items requested at both schools

 

 

 Mary's Lunch Box

 

Mary’s Lunch Box is a backpack program at Meadowview Elementary School that is supported by a coalition of churches in the community, including Emory United Methodist Church.  Each Friday afternoon over 100 students from the school take home a bag of food in their backpacks to help them make it through the weekend with decent, kid-friendly meals. Volunteers from the congregation help to unpack and sort cans, assemble food bags, and deliver the bags to the classrooms.

 

 Recycling

 

Stewardship of the Earth - Recycling

On the first Saturday of each month from 9:30-11:30 AM, Emory United Methodist continues a long commitment to the environment by offering a recycling opportunity to the community.

Bring  plastic (of all kinds), newspapers, office paper, junk mail, and magazines to place in the Washington County recycling bin at the Depot across from the Emory Post Office. Church volunteers will be on hand to accept aluminum, copper, and brass for transport to Wise Recycling in Bristol. Money from this sale helps low income families pay medical bills.

Even a little bit helps. Since its inception in the late 1980's,  this recycling project, with the cooperation of  the  Washington County, Emory & Henry College,, and with contributions from church members and the community, has diverted many thousands of pounds from the landfill and provided over $72,000 to the Medical Assistance Fund.

For more information, call Pastor David Jackson at 276-944-6841.
