United Methodist Men’s Fun Run, Rock and Roll Fundraiser
Get physically active while benefiting a good cause! Throughout the month of April, we are asking you to make a pledge to contribute to the UMM based upon the miles you run, walk, or roll! Ask your friends to support you by multiplying your pledge. We encourage pledges from those who use walkers or wheelchairs as well.
All pledges will benefit the Good Samaritan Fund, which assists with financial needs of families in our local community. Keep track of your miles until April 30, then mail your mileage chart & contribution (“UMM Fundraiser” in the memo line) to the church at 11551 Lucks Ln, Midlothian, VA 23114.
Prizes will be awarded to 1) the highest mileage recorded, 2) the greatest gift we receive, and 3) to the greatest sacrifice from those using walker or wheelchair.

The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a group of volunteers who help support the community in a public health emergency. The MRC is currently assisting Chesterfield and surrounding counties in administering the COVID vaccine and needs additional volunteers as the county works to ramp up vaccinations in the coming weeks and months. While medical professionals are greatly appreciated, non-medical volunteers can be used as well. If you are interested in volunteering, fill out the form at https://vvhs.vamrc.org. There is a two hour, online training session. Thank you!
We continue to support two food banks, one at Sherbourne UMC and one at Holy Comforter. Collection bins are placed outside the CLC doors every Sunday afternoon from 12-4, and food is delivered each week. All canned/packaged, unopened, non-perishable food is welcome, but they have asked especially for breakfast items (Cereal, oatmeal, grits), soups, pasta, pasta sauce, peanut butter, jelly, crackers & side dishes.
