In addition to our Mission Action Council approved partners, we have additional local and global organizations you can help support. Below is a list of these outreach opportunities and the UPUMC mission liaison.
If you are interested in volunteering with one of these missions, please contact the mission liaison listed below.
Every day of the week volunteers from UPUMC pick up day-old breads from local grocery stores and deliver them to nonprofits to help feed our neighbors. The time commitment is about 2 hours and volunteers rotate on a schedule.
