Generous people give WUMCO a lot of mac and cheese, but forget our clients need milk and butter to make it. We are out of milk and butter and would appreciate people dropping by the office in Poolesville Baptist Church between 9:30 am and 12 noon to drop some off. Thanks so much!

WUMCO Help has a lot of food in the pantry, but we are missing some vital things, like soup, tomato paste, canned pasta (like ravioli), canned meats (like tuna, chicken, salmon, etc.), canned chili, canned beef stew, and fresh milk, butter, and cheese.

Drop off all food donations at the WUMCO office in the Poolesville Baptist Church across from the High School, Monday through Friday from 9 am to 12 noon, and the non-perishable food in the parking lot cupboard at Drs. Pike and Valega's office or at Hilton Funeral Home in Barnesville.

What is the last day for toy donations? Thank you.
SCOUTING FOR FOOD 2019 Local scouts are busy organizing the annual Scouting for Food drive that directly benefits WUMCO. It was reported to have collected 6,475.5 lbs. of food last year. We will be placing 4”x6” post it notes (as shown in the picture) on doors. This allows the note to be transferred to your kitchen as a reminder. Any bag or box that you have will do for placing your non-perishable food donations in. You can place the note on the bag/box when you place it outside. Scouts will not deliver a note to homes with "No Solicitors" signs or with loose dogs in the yard. Saturday, November 2 starting at 9:00am Scouts will be visiting houses all around town, placing notes on doors. Saturday, November 9 starting at 9:00am Scouts will commence pick-up of donations for delivery to WUMCO.
