Legal Aid Opportunity

LegalAid850x315txtGreetings from the Legal Aid Volunteers of FUMC Allen!

It’s the time of year when we look to our FUMC classes and organizations to sign up to support the Legal Aid Clinic with the snack supper schedule for 2015. Please prayerfully consider assisting with this community outreach program from our church family.

For more than 21 years, FUMC Allen has sponsored the Legal Aid clinic on the second Thursday of each month in the Fellowship Hall. We do this in partnership with Legal Aid of Northwest Texas. In 2014 so far, we have helped more than 357 clients.

Each month, we provide a snack supper for 60-80 people including clients, children, and volunteer attorneys, aids, and helpers. The snack supper is your choice; Sandwiches, Hot Dogs, Pizza, BBQ, chips, cookies, veggies and fruit trays are examples of what groups have provided in the past. This nourishment helps provide a welcoming environment for our brothers and sisters who come to the clinic in need of legal assistance, God’s love, and the fellowship of all of you, our church family.

Please prayerfully consider supporting this important mission by providing the snack supper for a month in 2015. Attached to this email is a sign-up sheet for you to indicate a preferred month for your group.  You can also just send an email to us at Please include the name of a primary contact with their phone and email address. A copy of the sign-up sheet will also be in your mail box in the Church office. You can place sign-up sheets in the Legal Aid mail box in the FUMC office, contact us via email or call us at 972-679-7768.

We will contact you to firm up the schedule as groups sign-up. We will also contact you as your selected month approaches to discuss arrangements and coordinate with you and your team.

As you are able and feel called, we encourage folks from your class or organization to be part of the evening helping to serve and host the clinic. It is always a rewarding experience to see the mission at work and surround the clients with our hospitality and love.

We welcome financial support to cover the cost of other supplies including drinks, plates, napkins, and so forth that we provide each month. Please prayerfully consider supporting the mission in this way as well or pass the word for us. Donations may be made out to FUMC Legal aid Clinic by check and placed in the Legal aid mail box.

Thank you for your help with this vital mission of our church.  You make a difference!

If you have questions, please reach out to us,

God’s Blessings,

The Legal Aid Hospitality Team
