Help Us Collect Cold Weather Supplies for The Homeless

Hypothermia is a real concern for those not living in the comfort of a warm home. As winter approaches, please help us collect cold weather supplies. We are collecting emergency blankets, warm socks, outerwear, and underwear. You may leave donations in collection barrels in the Welcome Center and Oak Street Center Lobby.

 If you don't have time to shop for these items but would like to help, you can donate straight to the United Methodist Women and they will buy the supplies. Make checks payable to United Methodist Women and designate Mustard Tree Ministries Winter Supplies. You can send the check to the church PO Box 208 37401 or drop it off in the church office.  

Assembly is an amazing experience!  If you are interested in attending please contact Donna Palmer  dsbpsych@gmail.com
