Donations are vital to Kumler Outreach Ministries’ work in the greater Springfield community.
Clothes, toys and small household items are part of the clothing ministry. Early fall is the ideal time to donate winter coats, hats, gloves and scarves, which are distributed October to March.
Food donations are welcome any time. Many groups hold food drives seasonally or for a special day, such as denim day. Other organizations collect a specific item. Still others are Pantry Partners committed to donating a week’s worth of the same item every month to help the Ministries defray its food costs. Food donations are critical in summer; demand is up because school is out, there are no free or reduced meals, and family budgets are strained.
Financial donations keep the doors open, the lights on, and ensure programs and services run smoothly while emerging needs are recognized and met.
