We are in need of seven vinyl table clothes for 8-foot tables (or $70 for a roll to cut) and a donation covering the cost of dinner ($12 each for 20 volunteers or $240) for youth and community service volunteers who help with the dinner.
Help is needed on Saturday, April 20 and Sunday April 21, setting up for breakfast, serving, and cleaning up. Look for the signup sheet in the Narthex for specific times.

Ruby’s Pantry-Coppertop has been distributing food at First United Methodist, the Coppertop Church at 230 East Skyline Parkway, on the third Thursday of every month since 2010. Ruby’s Pantry-Coppertop is a community partner of Ruby’s Pantry. There are no income guidelines and anyone may participate.
For a $20 donation (cash only; checks and EBT cards cannot be accepted), participants receive approximately two large boxes of food. Please bring your own boxes — laundry baskets work very well.
Contents of a share vary depending upon what food is available to Ruby’s Pantry at the time; some typical items are listed below. We often post information about food items at facebook.com/rubyspantrycoppertop on distribution day.
Food distribution at FUMC is on the third Thursday of every month, with registration from 4 to 6:30pm and distribution beginning at about 5:15 and continuing until the distribution ends at about 6:45pm.
Give an hour or more, anytime between 3 and 8 pm. Choose a task: welcome, traffic control, unloading truck, food repackaging, food distribution, carry-out helper, box recycling, clean-up. It’s easy and fun!
Volunteers are always welcome. If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, please call First Methodist Church at 727-5021.
