UMW Thanksgiving Baskets / Toy Store

For many years the UMNC has collaborated with local United Methodist Churches to provide a Thanksgiving Basket of food around the Thanksgiving holidays and Children’s Toy Store around Christmas time. These programs are coordinated by each Key Woman representative of the participating Churches.

The Christmas Toy Store is another program administered by the United Methodist Key Woman.  A person who participates in the THANKSgiving Basket program can not participate in the Christmas Toy Store. Applications for both programs are taken at the same time. Donations to the toy store are always welcome. Here is a Toys List for possible donations for the Christmas Toy Store from our friends at Reelfoot Rural Ministries.
