We are very concerned for what is to come next as more-and-more people lose jobs, as basic necessities become harder to find and people find themselves at high-risk of COVID-19 (and for some people even grocery shopping is dangerous). The Cupboard and The Closet (at the Community Center) has temporary closed due to safety, the Community Food Pantry (in the basement of the United Methodist Church) is only able to provide modest help once a month, and there are many people who have a growing need who do not have children in school to receive snack packs from Feed My Lambs. More is going to be necessary to feed, clothe and provide basic necessities for the people of our community.
Abingdon United Methodist Church is establishing a Community Fund, expanding our food ministry through The Cupboard and the Closet, building a new partnership with the Midwest Food Bank, starting a mask-making ministry, and gearing up for food deliveries.
