School Supplies:

During the month of July, the school supplies will be appearing (and on sale) in stores. This year we will have 2 baskets for collecting supplies. One will be labeled “local” and items will be distributed to local families. The other basket will be labeled “Ingathering” and will have specific items needed for the Ingathering School Kits.

Midwest Mission Collection Center

“Fill the Trailer” for MMDC

Since we have a group of volunteers going to Midwest Mission in August, Jeff Honold has offered to pull a trailer with whatever supplies we can gather between now and the first week in August. He has also offered to do a local radio interview for us. Let your friends and neighbors know about this opportunity.

Items need by Midwest Mission Distribution Center:

These items need to be new.

· New 5 gallon buckets with lids

· Liquid laundry detergents 32-64 size ONLY

Note: Currently they have an abundance of bicycles, so those are not needed at this time. If enough bicycles are repaired over the summer, we will let you know if those are again an item on the request list.

If you have items to donate, please call the church office and let them know what items you are donating and if you need someone to do a pick up.


Reduce single-use plastic in the environment and give back to those in need in the local community, all while running routine weekly errands at the local HyVee. Carroll FUMC Soup and Cookie Ministry has been selected by local HyVee store leadership as the benefiting non-profit in the Reusable Bag Program for July!

For every $2.50 bag you purchase $1.00 is made to our Soup and Cookie ministry.
