Maumee and South Toledo Churches are combining efforts to support the 33 families who lost their homes and possessions in the deadly apartment fire that took 4 lives on January 15th 2017. 100 individuals were displaced, 46 of which were children. Here are some ways, as members of the Body of Christ, we can respond:
DONATE MONEY: Use memo line “mattress fund.” The money will be used to purchase mattresses at a discount from The Appliance Center.
DONATE ITEMS: Think about your first apartment and what you needed. Dishes, pots, pans, utensils, towels, bed linens, towels, small appliances can be brought to MUMC for collection in The Well area. Furniture can be donated to: OneHope Church at 4621 Glendale Ave. (a distribution center for this crisis) Contact: Pastor Steve Korn at 419-344-4011 or 2stevekorn [at] gmail.com.
DONATE FOOD: Donations can be made to Maumee Churches United Food Pantry, “Under One Roof,” located at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church (Wayne and Elizabeth streets). Contact number: 419-794-0111.
