The First United Methodist Church of Alpena recently made an impactful donation to the Boys and Girls Club of Alpena of program incentives, after-school snacks, hygiene items and school supplies.  Each month the Church’s Mission Team targets a local organization to support.  The Mission Team saw a need at the Club and gracefully came together to facilitate the needs of youth in our community.  A list was posted at the Church and parishioners from First United Methodist Church made valuable donations throughout the month of October to help our community’s youth.  Amanda Bacon, Mission Team Chair, stated “the vision of our Mission Team is our hands and feet are God’s hands and feet and our heart is to serve others.”  Boys and Girls Club of Alpena’s Executive Director, Bradley Somers, added “without a supportive community and organizations like this the Club could not make a strong impact on youth.  We are so grateful that our community recognizes the needs of our next generation’s leaders and steps up to join us in our mission and become part of the Club’s family.”
