In conjunction with the United Methodist Women the Chews Outreach Committee assists in sponsoring the Interfaith Homeless Outreach Council. The committee helps the homeless of our area with distribution of toiletries, and, in the fall, backpacks full of school supplies for homeless children. Chews UMC outreach participates in the IHOC Mall Walk each February to help raise funds to assist men who are in transition from the streets to independent living. The walk is held the last Sunday in February.

For this community event, we are joined by various health care providers and vendors who provide a great deal of information about health and wellness. 

How to stay healthy, including free screenings, coupled with an American Red Cross blood drive. Each year in June, at Veteran’s Park, Chews UMC outreach participate in the American Cancer Society, ‘Relay for Life.’ The relay begins on a Saturday morning and continues through until Sunday morning. Volunteers make sure someone is on the track walking during the entire time. Many feet make light the work; many volunteers mean everyone only needs to walk for a short while. Come join us during this important event and help raise money for a good cause.

Blessing of the Animals

Each September Chews UMC Outreach holds a service to bless our precious animal friends. The service is held in the church parking lot. We ask for donations of pet food which is taken to the local no-kill shelters.

Is a United Methodist Outreach that has been serving the people of Camden, New Jersey since 1913.

They currently have a daycare and after school programs as well as a soup kitchen which serves thousands of meals each month. A Flash Grocery Store is created for Thanksgiving so that about 600 families who qualify can choose the foods they want for their dinners. A Flash Christmas Store is created so that parents can choose Christmas gifts for their children. Chews UMC donates food and gifts for these events. The Center’s programs are growing and volunteers are welcome any day of the week.
