The partnership between Methuen Arlington Neighborhood, Inc. (MAN, Inc.) and First Church Congregational, Methuen (FCC) will continue for its 9th consecutive year in 2019. The Project provides backpacks, school supplies, new back-to-school outfits and shoes for 75 children and youth from one of Methuen’s poorest neighborhoods.
Dedicated and generous members of First Church help make this project a reality each and every year. Volunteers from our church are at the heart of this important project. Further support comes from local businesses, individual donations, and generous discounts on clothing and shoes from local stores. Additionally, the Methuen Exchange Club and the John Hancock Masonic Lodge provide both funds and volunteer hours.
Volunteer sign-up sheets are also posted in the Parish Hall.
Here are the activities for which you can sign- up.
