Red Bird Mission
Each fall, Endwell UMC takes part in gathering/filling shoeboxes from around upstate New York to be given to the Red Bird Mission, located in Beverly, Kentucky..
The donations are headed to the heart of what was once coal mining country in Kentucky. Today, with the mines closed, thousands of people now live in poverty, in what’s become one of the poorest areas in the state. It’s a mission our church members have stood behind for years.
The church collects donations from all across New York state, with the goal of supporting a mission hundreds of miles from home, and its items many may not think to donate.
