Methodist women donate Lenten money to Helper mission
Members of the United Methodist women sponsored the Lenten lunches assisted by the Ministerial Alliance. Last week, the group donated all the offerings to the Golden Rule Mission in Helper.
The proceeds from the luncheons have been donated to charities in the past that support women and children and the Golden Rule Mission was also the recipient last year where the money was used to purchase a new refrigerator for their soup kitchen.
