Food, Clothing, & Limited Financial Assistance

EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE (EA)

FUM came into existence in 1974 to address the widespread needs of people suffering in crisis situations throughout the county. Starting from a basement, Emergency Assistance grew into an effective grass roots operation that touches thousands of lives. Now the program houses a food pantry, clothing closet, and a financial assistance service for families and individuals in crisis. All of this is made possible by community partners who donate non-perishable food items, new & lightly used clothing, hygiene items, household goods, and money.  In fiscal year 2014-15, we served more than 8,000 people, over 500 homeless, and 632 military-affiliated lives.

 

“It is simply amazing what a bag of groceries, clothing, or a few dollars can do to transform a life story!”
