Gilbert Feeding Families – Food Drive

Friday, May 15th – Sunday, May 17th
7:00 am – 5:00 pm
331 S. Cooper Rd. Gilbert, AZ 85233

We need YOUR help due to the impact of COVID-19 on the Gilbert community. Recent events have created a large number of people who need the basics, such as food, and a critical component of the food bank supply has been altered because of the lack of annual food drives and ability of grocery stores to donate.

Please consider participating in this community wide food drive to help all of our food pantries and food banks to Feed the Families of Gilbert.

Family Promise

Sign-Up for Family Promise week August 16-23

Family Promise partners with over 30 interfaith congregations across the Valley to provide safe overnight shelter, food and compassion to families in crisis. As a partner congregation, FUMC of Gilbert will be hosting up to 4 families for a week a few times each year. We will need volunteers to set up and breakdown sleeping rooms, provide dinner, serve as an overnight host and do laundry. Please consider joining us to give these families the hand-up that they need to get back to self-sufficiency. To learn more about this life-changing program click here.

For any questions or to volunteer, please email DyAnn O’Brien, call or email the church office (480-892-9166).
