Many ways to give:

You can give in person, via email, or by giving online using our online portal. The portal is run by Vanco Payment Solutions Payment Solutions. For those who are United Methodists who choose to donate instead through the Advance, we have links to those numbers as well.

In Person

During every worship there is an opportunity to respond to God’s love through tithes and offerings. One may also drop of checks in person to the community food pantry or to the church office, open every Wednesday from 10 to 2 p.m.

Advance Special Numbers

Willow UMC and the Food Pantry are also supported through the Advance Special Program of the United Methodist Church. If you would like to participate in the Advance, your congregation can either submit gifts through your conference treasurer, or by going directly to the Advance Site:

Willow Community Food Pantry — #931520 (Holston Conference #264)

When you partner with us in ministry, we will regularly keep you up to date through newsletters and e-mails about what is happening here, and any special projects as they arise. Gifts given through the Advance reach Willow in 3 or 4 months.

By Mail

Checks for either the food pantry or the church may be sent to:

Willow United Methodist

In either case they should be made out to Willow United Methodist Church and marked on the envelope or byline whether you prefer they go to support the Food Pantry or the Church.

In-Kind Giving

The food pantry also has several in kind giving projects one can participate in. We recommend using prepaid boxes to keep postage costs down. Every year we gather:

  • School supplies
  • Cloth shopping bags
  • Toiletries
  • New clothing for infants through adults
  • Handmade scarves and hats
  • Gift cards

Parcel Post Auction Boxes

One of our favorite mission endeavors is our parcel post auction held each March.
