Story

PUMC is actively seeking donations to assist with establishing the first and so far only, Emergency Overnight Warming Shelter in Peterborough. With your help, we will provide a warm place for families and individuals in our community on the coldest winter nights.

There are many reasons people may find themselves temporarily without housing; a few include:

• Fleeing from a violent relationship

• Renters who have lost housing due to owner selling property or raising rent

• House fires

• Seniors who can no longer afford to stay in their homes now on waiting lists for senior housing

• Single parents who struggle to find affordable housing

Your donation will cover costs we incur as a result of preparing our space, such as installation of a donated generator (permit, electrical work, and building a safe & secure storage box for the generator), help offset the increased heating and electric bills the church will incur while serving as a shelter, and any additional items we need to provide a safe and comfortable space for our guests. Your donation is tax deductible.

To learn about other ways to help with this mission, please contact the church at shelter@peterboroughumc.org or by phone at 603-924-4294, or visit our website at https://www.peterboroughumc.org/ .

Thank you!

‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Mathew 25:40
