Union UMC will host DELCO Interfaith Hospitality Network December 6-13!


Guests of the Delaware County Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) will be arriving at Union UMC on Sunday, December 6 and will be staying there until December 13. Our guests are parents with children who receive housing and employment support through the IHN. In a typical week 3-5 families (8-14 individuals) are supported with a warm place to stay and much care and encouragement.

Volunteers are needed to cover the supper hours (5-7 p.m.), evening hours (7-9 p.m.), and overnight hours (9 p.m. - 7 a.m.). If you would be able to help, please contact the office of Union UMC at 610-789-1700 and please leave a message if no one is there.

Your help with monetary contributions to support the meals provided throughout the week and the ongoing ministry of IHN are also greatly appreciated. Go here to learn more about the Interfaith Hospitality Network.
