LINK, Inc. exists to provide emergency food and financial assistance to qualified people in need. Herndon UMC helps support LINK by serving as a donation drop off point (year-round) and by supporting an on-site LINK food pantry. Herndon UMC also hosts the Christmas toy distribution each year. LINK is comprised of a number of dedicated churches, businesses, organizations, and individuals. LINK serves the Herndon, Sterling, and Ashburn communities. The all-volunteer staff at LINK believe in the power of unconditional love. Learn more about LINK at linkagainsthunger.org.
In a new effort to support LINK, Herndon UMC will begin to hand out purple bags every other month. Attached to each bag is a label with the dates that bags will be available and the dates that they should be returned. On the back of the label is a list of the most needed items. Please take a bag, donate what you can of needed items, and return it the week of the Sunday specified. We will bless the donations in worship and volunteers will take the food to the LINK pantry.
Bags will be handed out starting JUNE 11. They will continue to be available in the Welcome Centers until JULY 2. Bags with donations should be returned the week of JULY 9. The next date that bags will be handed out will be AUGUST 13.
This is an opportunity to invite neighbors and friends into serving with you. You may pick up bags for others and have them bring the foods to you, for you to return on the dates specified, or even better, invite them to worship with you on July 9.
