We invite your congregation to join Truckers Canning Hunger to help us obtain as many non-perishable donations as possible so we can make a positive impact on the community in the Toledo area who need our help.  Our goal, together with your help, is to fill the shelves of food designed to feed a family for three days.  Arrangements can be made to collect your donations.  For more information, please see the MWD events page by clicking: MWD Events - Trucker Canning Hunger.

Trilby UMC Gently Used Purses

Trilby United Methodist Church made some gently used purses that were filled with necessary items for some of the women at Mom's House. Yesterday, 30 of them were delivered for their orientation.  They originally did 118 and did them for three organizations Rebecca's Haven, Mom's House, and Bethany House. They were so well received that Mom's House asked Trilby to do an additional 30 after they had already done this for Mother's Day.  They were filled with shampoos, conditioners, deodorant, polishes, emery boards, sanitizer, tissues, etc.
