WUMC to Assist Auburn Maine Ministry
The High Street Food Pantry is led by two organizations: High Street Congregational Church (HSCC) and the United Methodist Church of Auburn (UMC). This organization has been in existence for 20 years, and has a volunteer roster of 40 plus individuals ranging in age from 10 to 95. Besides UMC of Auburn and HSCC, other churches and two Community Banks that provide volunteers. Fifteen or more volunteers are required each week to keep things on track along with the five truck drivers needed for food deliveries from the Good Shepherd Food Distribution Center.
Wilmington UMC is continuing to support the High Street Food Pantry in Lewiston, Maine with their BOOK MINISTRY
This ministry collects and distributes children's books, dictionaries, Pictionary's, cookbooks, etc. Over 10,000 books have already been distributed. In many instances, the book distribution includes a "pastoral care" conversation. Any and all contributions are very much appreciated! How will we help? We continue to collect books in Room 1-1 that are periodically delivered to this program. Any and all books will be accepted and stored in Room 1-1. Please bring your donations of new or used books at any time and add to the collection.
Thank you for all of your donations to plasticoceans.org and for allowing me to speak at your church!

Thank you so much for the wonderful farewell party and the generous gifts. Wilmington UMC is a special place, filled with wonderful people. My family and I were blessed to be a part of this church community. It was a great 12 years. Thank you for all you did for us, and for walking with us in our life journey.
