In August, St. Paul’s UMC opened the Marketplace for All People. Since that time, we have served over 1300 people. The end of October we had served 1203 people. Of that number, 696 were adults, 81 were seniors and 423 were children. The Marketplace is open from 10 until 12:45 each Friday. We are using lots of cookies, coffee before worship and hundreds plastic bags each week.
As we face the coldest weather, we find that we are short on coats. While we continue to need all types of donations we particularly need clean, gently used coats, big and tall men’s clothing and plus size women’s items. We are still looking for volunteers for sorting and setting up on Thursdays as well as Fridays. If you would like to donate or volunteer, please call the church office at 419.243.8284.
