Group Drives & Fundraisers
UMEM is always seeking collaborative contributions from churches, schools, professional groups, fraternal & sororal organizations, businesses, and local teams. Many of these groups create friendly competitions to motivate giving and our families come out
as the winners every, single time!
If your group is interested in setting up a drive or fundraiser to benefit UMEM, our staff at all three locations are happy to coordinate and plan with you! You can call, stop by, reach out via social media or simply click the "contact" button below to get more information.
Strong UMC & Mt. Abram Spring Shampoo Run!
The Strong United Methodist Church has a vibrant tradition of group drives! Each spring, they join forces with the Mt. Abram High School girls and boys track teams to deliver their donations in a special way -- during practice the students run to and through the Salem UMEM to deliver bottles of shampoo to our Food Cupboard Manager, Yvonne Woodcock.
Good, clean fun is had by all and community members benefit from the generosity and enthusiasm of the SUMC congregation and the students!
