Children should not have to worry about basic supplies for school. That’s where Washington UCC comes in.

Back to School Program

Each August, we provide children connected to Washington UCC with school uniforms, hygiene products, a backpack, and school supplies.

Washington UCC is committed to the neighborhood we’ve called home since 1872.

Thanksgiving

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.

Christmas is an opportunity for us to come together as a members of the Body of Christ to be certain that no person goes hungry and no child feels unloved.

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.
