Opportunities to Serve
Greater Milford Area and Beyond

We are always taking donations for our Free Little Pantry. We are looking for donations of canned tuna, canned chicken, rice, beans, macaroni and cheese, hearty soups, pasta, spaghetti sauce, individual servings of cereal, oatmeal, fruit cups, peanut butter, jelly, and more.
Ecumenical Food Pantry of Pike County
We support the food pantry located at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church. Our MUMC Team is always looking for people to help hand out food once a month on Friday nights at 6:15.
Milford COVID Relief Fund
With the partnership of Milford Covid Relief Fund, Pike County Covid Relief Fund, Greater Pike Community Foundation and other agencies, we are helping our neighbors during this difficult time.
Since April, we have dispensed gas vouchers, meal vouchers, utility bill payment assistance, help with clothing and food for dozens of families. We praise God from whom all blessings flow and are thankful for the opportunity given to us to look after each oth- er with the love of Christ.
UMCOR Cleaning Kits
Using donated buckets from Home Depot, we stock them with cleaning supplies that enable people to begin the overwhelming job of cleaning up after a flood or hurricane. We deliver them to Skylands Outreach Depot. For more information, click here.
We collect school supplies and pack backpacks every year for families at the Pike County Ecumenical Food Pantry. In 2020, we were able to hand out 65 backpacks to children in need packed with school supplies, hand sanitizer, and face masks!
Christmas Giving Tree
Each year at Christmas, we support local families and buy Christmas gifts for children in need. Members of the congregation are able to take a star, purchase an item, wrap it and return it to be delivered to a local family.
