The Greenwood District Disaster Response Team is coordinating collecting HEALTH KITS that will be taken to the Conference Center in Columbia. Collection points are St. Mark UMC, 550 Hwy 72 Bypass NW, Greenwood, and Grace UMC, 639 Georgia Avenue, North Augusta. Churches, small groups, and individuals are encouraged to create as many health kits as possible between November 1 and November 15. All kits will be delivered to Columbia by November 18.
Hunger is a national and a global crisis situation. Please join us this month is striking a blow to hunger in our community and in the Greenwood District. Every 3.6 seconds a person dies of hunger and 75% are children.
Many people in our area are food-insecure, meaning they lack access at time to enough food for an active, healthy life and limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate foods. Good insecurity may reflect a family’s need to make a choice between food and other basic needs such as housing or medical bills.
Churches in the Greenwood District are encouraging their members to use the September Hunger Awareness Calendar as a guide for collecting money during the month. On Sunday, October 4, all donations are to be brought to church for a time of dedication during the morning worship service.
For more information on how you can participate in the Hunger Awareness Month observance, please contact the Greenwood District Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
