Relay for Life

Relay for Life is coming up! Los Altos UMC is participating in an American Cancer Society Relay For Life event by joining forces with Belmont Heights United Methodist Church. The relay event will be from 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 1 to 9 a.m. on Sunday, June 2 at Millikan High School. We'd love to have everyone join our team. Relay For Life is a time for family and friends to honor cancer survivors, remember those lost to this disease, and raise funds and awareness to help end cancer forever. Too many people, some you and I may know, will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Relay For Life is our opportunity to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease. To join our team, go to www.RelayforLife.org. Choose 'Join a Relay', and join the Belmont Heights UMC team after finding the Long Beach Relay event. Please let Erin Stubbs (erin@alumni.purdue.edu) know what time you can walk.

“Get On The Bus” 2019 - Uniting Children with Their Mothers and Fathers in Prison

This year’s “Get On The Bus” program starts in January-April with volunteer training, visits to the participating families and collecting items for the bus trip. Our fundraising goal this year is steep—almost $8,000. We are sponsoring two buses: one to a women’s prison (Chowchilla) on May 10 and one to a men’s prison (San Quentin) on May 31. Cost to sponsor one participant for these bus trips is around $134. Please give what you can. “Get On The Bus” is a program of the nonprofit Center for Restorative Justice Works (CRJW) in Montebello. Note: There will also be a restaurant fundraiser at Super Mex (Spring & Palo Verde) on April 24. A flier will be available in a few weeks.
