The Outreach Committee of the WLUMC met after church January 21. The committee also purchased a $100.00 gas card for a family needing to take a child to Cleveland for treatment. Nate arranged and a very nice thank you was received from the family.
Jean reported all the names were taken from the Christmas Tree this past year.
Jean reported a family was helped through the school with clothing, toys and shoes $242.00, which included steel-toed shoes for the father. Also, a food basket for $52.01 was provided to a family at the suggestion of Precious Treasures Day Care.
Nate and Chris also reported installing a water heater, $80.00, for a family of three living in a 17’ camper at Lake Lila. The need was reported through the school who also received some grants for other items needed for installation. A special thank you to Auer Hardware and the Smith family for helping meet these needs.
Nate and Chris reported there are many needs for those living in the Lake Lila area.
Chris McNeal moved and Kathy Hendricks seconded that the Outreach Committee again work with the UMW to hold a carryout or eat-in Chicken Dinner, April 6, 2018 and to increase the amount to $10.00 per meal. Motion carried. Our cost will be $4.75 per meal and includes chicken, baked beans, potato salad, roll, butter, drink and necessary paper products. The Newcomerstown IGA will provide the meal and women of the church will provide pies for dessert.
