ESUMC has supported the Fred Finch Youth Center and its programs through the years in various ways, including a library renovation and repainting job about ten years ago. Today, our chief relationship is through Christmas gifts for young adults transitioning into independent living. This year's request is simple. A $25 gift card from Target, Best Buy, VISA or American Express, etc., would be very welcome. (Note: Merchant gift cards usually have no fees attached; however, those from credit cards usually do).
DEADLINE: Bring to ESUMC by December 14.
The Greater Richmond Interfaith Program (GRIP) / Souper Center provides free, nutritious hot lunches to all hungry individuals and families, and also provides shelter residents with three meals a day, every day. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. every day of the year. Most food is donated, and meals are prepared and served by volunteers. The Souper Center is co-housed at GRIP’s Family Housing and Supportive Services facility at 165 22nd Street in Richmond, CA.
ESUMC's Super Center Ministry actively supports the Souper Center on a monthly basis; we meet there at 10:30 a.m. on the third Friday of each month. If you would like to help, please contact Mike McGoon, Jack McFarland or call the Church Office at 510-223-0790.
