Food Drive for BCM
March & October
Buckhead Christian Ministry (BCM) provides a central place for working poor to find assistance with food, rent, utilities and other needs. Twice a year we collect non-perishable food items to stock their pantry. See list here.
Tennis Shoe Drive for Agape
We collect new or slightly used tennis shoes for the families served by Agape. Children’s sizes 1 – 4, and adult sizes 6 – 7. Many of the children are wearing shoes too big or too small.
Diaper and Formula Drive
Through our Diaper and Formula Drive we support homeless families throughout Atlanta. We collect all sizes of diapers and training pants, all infant formulas, unscented baby wipes and unflavored Pedialyte. Donors may also “click and ship” directly from Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/294YHDWBRKSGX.
Habitat for Humanity Easter Offering
At the beginning of Lent, we ask the congregation to set aside an offering each day as a part of our Lenten discipline. On Easter Sunday we bring this offering to give glory to God and celebrate the Resurrection. This special offering is used to build a house for Atlanta Habitat for Humanity. Together, we help revitalize and strengthen neighborhoods and move toward ending sub-standard housing.
Wesley Woods Mother’s Day Offering
Each year on Mother’s Day, Peachtree Road UMC contributes to the vital services for the elderly provided by Wesley Woods. We are proud to be leaders in the tradition of giving to offer safe and supportive living for low-income senior adults throughout Georgia. By assisting with shelter, healthcare and necessities, elderly residents are given a decent and dignified life.
Summer Camp Scholarship Offering
Each year we have the chance to make a life long impact on a young person today by helping them attend a summer camp at PRUMC. Our scholarships provide homeless children and youth a chance to have fun and learn at one of our summer sports or crafts camps. Funds are also used to provide new athletic shoes, casual clothing and swim suits for campers.
Backpack Drive Offering
Every summer PRUMC provides over 2000 backpacks to shelter and low income children in Atlanta. Each backpack is stocked with brand new school supplies needed for the school year. Our partner agencies distribute completed packs to children in need for the upcoming school year.
Thanksgiving Turkey Drive
We help provide a low income families with Thanksgiving Dinner each year. $10 provides a turkey and $20 provides an entire Thanksgiving meal.
United Methodist Children’s Home Offering
On Children’s Sunday, PRUMC takes an offering for the children at our United Methodist Children’s Home in Decatur. The United Methodist Children’s Home provides children who have been neglected or abused with refuge, counseling and support. Its mission is to help children feel loved, safe and cared for.
Each December we open our Christmas Kindness Shop to the homeless and working poor of Atlanta. With dignity and joy, families are able to select gifts, small appliances and warm coats. Guides and helpers take each family through the shop, wrapping and loading stations. We give away over 10,000 gifts to those in need.
