Rides 4 Rubbish (R4R)
Through relationship-building we are partnering with clients of the Marian House Soup Kitchen to clean up trash in downtown. Client volunteers referred to FUMC through a sign-up sheet at Catholic Charities. We gather, a dozen volunteers from FUMC and up to 20 client volunteers on the third Sunday of each month at 1:45 pm. From 2:00 – 4:00 pm we go out into the area in groups or “teams” on foot collecting trash together. At the end of this two hour service project the client volunteers receive bus passes for local Metro transit. This ministry is powerful for all involved. A strong relationship of trust and common purpose has developed between FUMC and the staff and client volunteers of the Marian House.
