As of the October, UMCC has contributed recycled goods to over 70 groups and organizations. Several schools are on the list as well as many community organizations and churches. We collect usable items as a service to the community, but the distribution of those goods not only expands our church’s mission, but the work of others as well. Gradually our own congregation is taking up the challenge to look for needs in our neighborhoods and among our coworkers. One-on-one is the best way to demonstrate God’s love and concern, and with the resources of Recycle for a Reason (R4R) it is something that can easily be accomplished. Not only are the recipients of the goods blessed, but the people who donate the items and those who arrange the connection also find joy in doing God’s work.
