Special Offering for UM Retirement Homes

UMC Retirement Homes The Special Offering on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 12th supports the United Methodist Benevolent Care Annual Fund providing financial and personal resources for residents who can no longer fully pay their way. In many cases these residents have no other means of support and often no family. It takes $100 to subsidize one day of care for benevolent residents. 

There will be special envelopes available at the church for this offering.  Or you may indicate “UMRH Offering” on your check memo line.  By supporting this fund you can make a difference in the lives of these residents.
 

elderly woman In 2018 this resident turned 103 years old. When she came to Methodist Retirement Community in Durham in 1973, she never expected to live this long. She remembers driving up to the front door and meeting the administrators and saying I have come to live here. She had come from New York and had been a successful career woman, and was and still is a Methodist. When this resident was in her late eighties, her funds began to dwindle and by the time she had reached 90 years old, she had run out of funds. For the last 13 years this resident has been able to live at our Croasdaile Village community because people have given to the Retirement Home Offering to support folks such as her. This is your opportunity to make life better for one of our many benevolent residents in our communities by giving to the UM Retirement Home Offering. waterweb If you do not know what to give, here is a chart of what your gift provides: $25 Provides for 1/4 a day $50 Provides for 1/2 a day
