Athens First United Methodist Church

For the past seven years, members of the First United Methodist Church in Athens, Texas, come to the Houston Rodeo. During the day, they volunteer at Medical Bridges sorting and boxing medical supplies and later enjoy the Rodeo.  As chairperson of the Missions Committee, Donna Morris along with her husband decided to lead the first volunteer team to Medical Bridges and they’ve been coming ever since. They heard about Medical Bridges from a Church member who moved to Athens from the Houston area. Their church has a Medical Equipment Closet where people donate and borrow used medical supplies. They keep what they need in their lending closet and bring excess items and other donations to Medical Bridges when they visit and work for two and a half days each year.  

After attending a meeting in Tyler last month, a local church heard about what the First United Methodist Church in Athens was doing. They decided to follow what the Athens church was doing and collected equipment from their members to send to Medical Bridges this year. Many thanks to our devoted friends from the First United Methodist Church in Athens being such great ambassadors for Medical Bridges.
