International Homeless Outreach Council (IHOC)
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.
