Dorchester County Public School Missions

 

Grace UM Church participates in the Backpack Program for Warwick Elementary by providing food for children who are identified as being at risk for receiving little or no food to eat over the weekend (Saturday and Sunday.)

We also provide snacks for PreK and Kindergarten classes at Sandy Hill and Choptank Elementary as well as needed school supplies for 1st thru 5th grade classes.

The Homeless are all around us ......

.... we just need to look around!

Cambridge Cold Weather Emergency Shelter 

 

The shelter is run by volunteers from the community, and a few hired monitors. It is housed behind the Salvation Army on Washington Street.

 

Each night, local churches work to provide dinner for those staying at the shelter. Grace UMC provides the Sunday night dinners along with Friendship United Methodist Church and The First Baptist Church.

 

 

The shelter is open every evening from 6 p.m. through 8 a.m. from December 1 to March 15.

 

The shelter receives no federal, state or local government funding, relying solely on donations and volunteers to continue to run.

 

Anyone in need is welcomed through the doors. The police department provides screenings, and the shelter is an alcohol and drug free zone. About 60 people total are served by the shelter throughout the season.
