Christian Assistance Program (CAP) / Food Pantry

During the month of July, CAP will be collecting canned meat, and for the month of August, CAP will be collecting canned pork and beans.

A basket is located at the bottom of the sanctuary steps to collect donations for our food pantry. If you want to donate in another way, you can donate cash in honor or in remembrance of someone. There are cards on the bookcase in the Fellowship Hall to complete and mail to our CAP address, 1239 Murray Rd., Odenton, MD 21113. Letters are sent out to the recipients or their families acknowledging these gifts.

Also, the CAP Clothes Closet is looking for donations of summer clothing, to include lightweight dresses and suits, shorts, short-sleeved shirts/blouses, t-shirts, etc. This also includes summer shoes -- sandals, sneakers, and even flip flops (new flip-flops only, please) in all sizes (but especially for children and women). The Clothes Closet is located at Nichols-Bethel UMC, 1239 Murray Road in Odenton. You may take items to the Clothes Closet during their regular hours of operation (11 am-1 pm on Tuesdays, 2-4 pm on Thursdays) or drop them outside the Closet door at other times. The summer months are very busy at the Clothes Closet, as clients can select up to 3 outfits for each member of their household once a month. Your donations are greatly appreciated!
