Our Mission

This page is dedicated to the missions we support and have supported in the past.

Gail Brown recently stopped by to show us some of the beautiful quilts she has made from fabrics donated by Angels’ Attic. Gail’s quilts are sent by Lutheran World Relief to countries all over the world. The quilts are used to shield against cold and rain, for warm bedding, as simple tents, or as a wrap to hold a baby on a mother’s back. They are a message of hope for people in their time of greatest need. Thank you, Gail, for letting us be a part of this wonderful mission.

Thanks to our Friend of The Attic, Brooke Andrews, we can see the actual delivery of your clothing donations from the spring switchover to the children who need them on the other side of the world.  Brooke recently visited the Bhuvaneshwori Satyal Foundation in Kathmandu, Nepal, to deliver donations from The Attic and learn more about this charity.  Impoverished families in Nepal cannot afford to pay for school or day care.  This center provides education, health care, housing, scholarships, and empowerment to those children.  What a blessing it is to see these precious children and this important work in the world.

slide1Angels’ Attic invites you to participate in our WCUMC Soldier Ministry by donating items to be sent to our men and women in the military. This is ongoing ministry, not just during the holidays. Boxes are sent regularly to soldiers who represent a unit, platoon, or battallion, and items are shared with others in the unit, especially those who do not get mail. Please donate items from the list. You may leave your donations at Angels Too. Also, take a plastic soldier from the baskets at Angels’ Attic and Angels Too to remind you to pray for our military.

Nothing is wasted at The Attic. White’s Chapel UMC’s Wonderful Wednesdays with Women has a sewing group, including some of our Attic volunteers, who spend their afternoon making pillow case dresses and shorts to send on Mission trips all over the world. Since 2011, they have made over 750 dresses and 350 pairs of shorts and are currently working on items to be sent on White’s Chapel mission trip to Ghana in November. Angel’s Attic helps provide this group with donated cotton fabric and denim for this project. If you are interested in helping with this project, contact tchristensen@whiteschapelumc.com. We also welcome any donations of fabric and denim. The smaller pieces of fabric are donated to another women’s ministry of the Lutheran Church, where they are used to make quilts for people in need.
