Serving God by Serving Others
CUMC served God by serving others recently by distributing 100 boxes of food to community neighbors. Thank you for your generosity.
On Friday, March 8, 2022, a tractor trailer truck from Blessings of Hope in Leola, PA, brought a truck load of food to be delivered and distributed by Cheverly UMC and First Hyattsville UMC.
First stop for delivery was Cheverly UMC. The delivery continues the CUMC's commitment to address food insecurity in our area. The delivery included snacks for lunches for unhoused county residents as well as 100 boxes of food that were distributed to the families of Gladys Noon Spellman Elementary School and residents of the Cheverly Station Apartments.
On Friday, May 27, 140 boxes of food accompanied by bags of meat, were distributed to Gladys Noon Spellman Elementary. Thanks to everyone who made this food ministry possible. Special thanks to the National Black Church Initiative for its significant donation.
On Friday, June 10, 2022, 100 GNS families received additional food - eggs, potatoes, arugula, aparagus, carrots, string beans. On Saturday, we were able to distribute 35 boxes of food and bags of polish sausage to families at the Cheverly Station Apartments.
