Youth Mission Trip Fundraisers

Youth Mission Trip Fundraisers

Our Youth Ministry is hosting two fundraisers in April to help reduce the most expensive part of youth mission trips and choir tours: transportation.

The first collection is an electronic drive. This event has been extended through May 5 (details below).

The second collection, a “Phill The Box” textile fundraiser, begins on Saturday, April 6, and concludes on Sunday, May 5 (details below)

All funds raised at these fundraisers will off-set the costs of van rental and gas.

Electronics Drive

If you missed the Electronics Drive on April 6, here is another chance!

  • Electronics Clean-Up Drive from April 9 through May 5 ONLY
  • We’ll accept anything that takes batteries or requires a power cord/cable to operate
  • Please no large appliances, furniture, yard toys, tube/rear projection TVs, hazardous materials, or gas/oil lawn equipment
  • Leave your electronics in the designated box in the Atrium
  • Pick-ups can be arranged by contacting Ed Whipple EdW@fumcallen.org
  • E-mail Mike Link MikeL@fumcallen.org with any questions

PHILL THE BOX FUND RAISER

The second collection, a textile fundraiser, begins Saturday, April 6, and concludes on Sunday, May 5.

We’ll be collecting the following items

  • Clothing, Apparel, and Shoes: Items should be clean and placed in plastic bags. We’ll accept gently used Women’s, Children’s, Baby’s and Men’s clothing
  • Accessories: Purses, Backpacks, Handbags, Clutches, Tote Bags, Shoulder Bags, Laptop Bags, Hats, Gloves, Ties, Scarves, Belts, and Wallets.
  • Household Textiles: Tablecloths, Towels, Bedding, Curtains

PHILL THE BOX partners with charitable organizations, and anything that cannot be re-used will be taken to a textile recycling plan to be repurposed so that nothing ends up in landfills.

We will have collection boxes located in the church parking lot during the collection month. These boxes will be emptied each week.
