Give a Gift in Kind

Even during this time of social distancing and staying at home, PUMC continues it work of showing love, sharing hope, and serving those in need.

A particular need at the moment is for food for persons and families out of work. You can help! On Sundays between 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and Mondays between 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. (for the foreseeable future), PUMC servant volunteers will be in the parking lot of the church (600 Simmons St., Plainfield) to receive gifts of food that will supply PUMC’s own hunger alleviation ministries (Monday night homeless, Saturday lunches), as well as St. Mark’s Food Pantry in Plainfield, Hendricks County Family Promise, Fletcher Place Community Center in Indianapolis, Indianapolis Public School 34, Hendricks County Active Grace.

Items that would be especially helpful include:
  • Cereal
  • Soup
  • Crackers
  • Ground Meat
  • Hamburger Helper
  • Hot Dogs and Hot Dog Buns
  • Canned Pasta Items
  • Canned Vegetables
  • Boxed Rice and Pasta
  • Peanut Butter and Jelly
  • Bread

As well as paper products, cleaning and laundry products, diapers, baby wipes, and personal hygiene products.

Simply drive through the drop-off zone in the east parking lot. You don’t even have to get out of your car! And please note, these drop off times will continue every Sunday and Monday until otherwise noted. Questions may be directed to Pastor Ken Loudenback at [email protected] or Mission Chair Person Ruth Ellen Stone at [email protected].

Thank you for showing God’s BIG Love in this way!
