BWUMC has had a long relationship with Cooper Community Center, a UMC sponsored service providing day care, afterschool care and other supportive services to children and families in the area. For years we have done a gift project at Christmas.
26 children grades K through 5 attend the Afterschool Program at Cooper Community Center in Roxbury. Our summer mission is to collect $$ and items for a gift of back-to-school supplies for each child.
Checks can be made out to BWUMC with ‘school supplies’ in the memo line
Items: Please adhere to the list below. A box for donations is in the Narthex.

NO BACKPACKS IN THIS BOX. Backpacks will be purchased from $$ donations to be age and gender appropriate for each child.
New or used books in good condition for grades K – 5 will be packaged separately and given to the Center
