Forney Students in need…

courtney News & Events

Forney First UMC members, we hope you are all doing well and hunkered down in this trying time.  We know that some of you would like to have a way to reach out and help others throughout our Forney Family.  In cooperation with Forney ISD, we are going to begin collecting the following items to be made available to students when they pick up their lunches at the Hubs. You may choose to package items as a kit in a bag, or you may choose to purchase or donate individual items. If anyone has 2 or 2.5 gallon zipper bags that we could use, that would be helpful as well.

To be given as a Kit:

Bar Soaps or body wash



Hand sanitizer

Toilet paper

Other items to be made available for those who need them:

Baby wipes


Feminine products

Toilet paper

Adult diapers

Drop off at First UMC Forney parking lot Sunday afternoons from 2 – 5 p.m. starting this Sunday, March 22, 2020.

In addition, we will accept monetary donations if you do not want to get out to go shopping.   Please share this list with your friends, family, and neighbors, as the need is real, and we will accept all donations.

If anyone would like to help with collections or distribution, please call Sarah Oleksy at 573-795-5054.  The district will need to know who is coming.
