Monthly Food Pantry Stewards Needed
We are looking for stewards to restock and manage the well-used Ted Cody Memorial Food Pantry. Thank you for considering joining in this low-stress, flexible time commitment mission at HUMC. When you sign up for a month, you are asked to please check the pantry on Sunday or the beginning of the week to see if food needs to be added and later in the week (Wednesday or Thursday). Restock the pantry as needed with 3 to 4 breakfast/dinner/snack items.
Judy Fry and Roxanne Tipton will continue to keep our food cabinet (in the stairwell behind the kitchen) full for stocking the pantry. If it should happen to get low during your month, just call, text, or email Judy or Roxanne.

Loudoun Cares: Connecting Those Who Serve with Those in Need
Loudoun Cares (loudouncares.org) is a County-wide umbrella organization that seeks to connect people in need with locally available services. They collect and disseminate opportunities to volunteer via an online website that allows you to search for the need that best fits your gifts or passion. Examples of the vital services they connect Loudoun residents with include rent assistance, job services, and emergency interventions. Their Volunteer Center (https://www.loudouncares.org/volunteer/) has a section for those who want to volunteer as well as those who want to list volunteer opportunities. Literature with more information and to learn about this community connector is available in the HUMC breezeway. You can also call them at 703-669-4636.
