Back to School Program
Each August, we provide children connected to Washington UCC with school uniforms, hygiene products, a backpack, and school supplies.
At Thanksgiving, the church provides food boxes that contain everything a family needs to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We are always in need of volunteers; this is a wonderful opportunity for church and civic groups to volunteer their time and make a concrete difference in the lives of individuals and families in Camp Washington.
Gifts to the Manger
Christmas is BIG as Washington UCC!
We register 100 families in Camp Washington and surrounding low-income neighborhoods, then purchase or seek donations of right-sized clothing and age-appropriate toys and gifts, along with food items.
In mid-December, the parents “shop” for their children in our Fellowship Hall, which is turned into a winter wonderland of new clothes, toys, and food.
This is our Gifts to the Manger ministry, which provides a Christmas to approximately 350 children.
Donations are always needed, as are volunteers.
