Peterborough, NH, March 18, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- PUMC is a small church, with a big heart. This church supports the homeless throughout the year. They gather needed items to donate to the Hundred Nights Homeless Shelter. They arrange tailgate dinners to cover for Friendly Kitchen soup kitchen when it is closed, so no one goes hungry on the weekend. They use the help of volunteers not just from the church, but from the Peterborough community. The biggest fundraising event of the year is the benefit supper that will be held Saturday, April 2 at 5 pm.
Peterborough United Methodist Church is once again holding a benefit supper to support transitional housing. The first benefit supper, the Chicken Dinner held last year, was sold-out. It raised $1002 for Shelter From the Storm and Monadnock Area Transitional Shelter, both Monadnock region homeless shelters.
Locals can donate a meal for residents of the shelters, or volunteer to help serve. Last year 82 diners were served, and all of the shelter residents getting a meal. This year plans are bigger, and Peterborough United Methodist Church is ready for a great success in this supper.
So join PUMC in the fight against homelessness, and some tasty Shepherd’s Pie, Saturday, April 2nd, 5 PM at 43 Concord Street in Peterborough NH.

Peterborough United Methodist Church, founded in 1819, recently celebrated the 175th anniversary of their church building. Their church family comes from all over the Monadnock region to share the Sunday worship service. Their recent growth has allowed them to hire two new employees in the past year, a secretary and nursery attendant. PUMC is a small church with a big heart. http://www.PeterboroughUMC.org/
