WILMINGTON — The Madison Mills United Methodist Church Outreach Program recently donated baby items, items for women, and money to the Angel House in Wilmington. The church did a Reverse Advent, and members added items each day during Advent in December. On Christmas Eve the church took an offering and donated it also.
The church is pastored by Kim Wisecup. Mr. and Mrs. Whitney delivered the items on Jan. 12, 2017.
The Angel House at 782 Xenia Ave. is a non-profit, all-volunteer house operating solely on donations and fundraisers. Angel House was established to house single, pregnant, homeless women who need a hand up, and a place to learn everyday skills, and family life. They can reside at the house for a period not to exceed a year (during pregnancy, and for up to three months after giving birth, if needed).
The Angel House does fundraisers during the year, and they are having a rummage sale in the white building behind the House on Ohio Avenue every first and third Saturday. In April they be holding an auction at the First Church of God on A Street.
All of the items for sale are donated, and they receive weekly donations to be sold at their rummage sales. They accept items that are gently used, or new. For the auction, they will only accept new items, unless the items are furniture, and then they should be like new.
