The Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC) is seeing something alarming – double-digit and consecutive increases in usage of its Food Pantry Network. However, with no parallel increase in contributions, they have the perfect storm, and they do not see an end in sight.

The WDMUMC Missions Team invites you to help make a difference by participating in DMARC’s Thanksgiving in July community-wide drive. We will be collecting cash donations for DMARC because they are able to purchase 2-6 times more food than consumers are able to purchase in the grocery store. To do this, a special donation envelope will be in your bulletin at our July 8 church services and will be available in the Narthex until July 31.  Just place your envelope in the collection plate or drop off in the church office.

DMARC will still happily accept the food items you donate in the red barrel on the first floor of our church.

Together, we can help DMARC continue to make a real difference to people in our community, people who are working, doing their best, but still need help to feed their family healthy and nutritious food.
