Undies Sunday for NCM: August 28
Norcross Cooperative Ministry helps people develop a good foundation for their lives, but sometimes a foundation of another kind is needed also.
Please bring new Fruit of the Loom, Jockey, or whatever your favorite kind of underwear is to help NCM's clients not only look good on the outside, but FEEL good underneath too! Remember August 28 and bring new, packaged undies of all sizes for all ages!
School Supplies Collected for NCM!
As a part of the Mt. Carmel Ministry Fair on Sunday, May 15th, we will pack school supplies to be given to local children by NCM in the fall. See list below for supplies needed - must be dropped off at Mt. Carmel BY MAY 13TH!
April is Food Drive Month for NCM!
While we try to help Norcross Cooperative Ministry all year long, April is our month to hold a FOOD DRIVE for NCM! Please remember them while you shop, and leave donations of non-perishable food (no glass jars please) in the NCM box in the church foyer.
Monetary donations are always needed also. Please make checks out to Mt. Carmel UMC, marked for NCM. Thank you for helping those in need in our community!
NCM Needs Your Help!
The temperature is starting to drop and NCM is receiving more requests for coats and blankets than they can keep up with! They need ALL types and sizes of coats, and especially Queen & King sized blankets. Please clean out your closets and donate your "gently used" items soon. Thanks for helping to keep families warm!
October is NCM Food Drive Month!
While we try to donate to Norcross Cooperative Ministry all year, it is especially important that we remember them in October and April. Those are the months that Mt. Carmel is signed up specifically to collect food and monetary donations for NCM. Please remember to put a few extra non-perishable foods in your cart each week for NCM, or make a monetary donation in the church offering plate, marked "NCM." Thank you for helping those in need in our community.
