CUMC Happenings

 Hurricane Flood Bucket Relief Drive

Chatham UMC has organized a response to aid our neighbors in North and South Carolina who are most impacted by the devastating floods from Hurricane Florence. We invite our greater local community to join us in our efforts to create disaster relief Cleaning Kits (“Flood Buckets”) for those in need. You may pick up an empty bucket and shopping list at the Chatham United Methodist Church, 460 Main Street, Chatham. Fill the bucket and return the completed kit to us. The Chatham UMC will be collecting these “Flood Bucket” Cleaning Kits throughout the next few weeks and will be sending them to UMCOR Disaster Coordinators in the affected areas. 

Bucket Instructions and shopping list

Chatham UMC continues to support First Friends by collecting writing materials for detainees, asylum seekers, and refugees who are being held in detention centers in NJ. They are in need of:
• PAPER  • ENVELOPES  • STAMPS  • PHONE CARDS so they can keep in touch with family members.  Supplies can be dropped off at the Chatham UMC. A collection box can be found on our upstairs information ledge. We are located at 460 Main Street, Chatham NJ 07928.
