Oak Lawn UMC Donation Event


In an effort to restock our food pantry and clothing closet, OLUMC will host a drive-by donation event on August 29th. Bring your gently used clothing to donate and/or food items with a lengthy shelf life! Pastor Rachel, Pastor Mara and Pastor Isabel will also be present to say "hello" and thank you for your donation!

When you drive through, here's how you can drop off your items:

  • Place items trunk of car (or back seat)
  • Package them so they are easy to grab!
  • Drive by between 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
  • Enter from Welborn and follow the ONE WAY arrows.
  • You'll stop near the X and a volunteer will retrieve your items
  • We will also have blessing bags available for you to take and keep in your car!

Donations We Need

  • No expired food, or dented or rusted cans.
  • All clothing should be washed and gently worn (no clothing with rips).
  • Shoes should not have holes in the soles.
  • Please bring warm clothing to help us prepare for the winter!
  • Those who cannot bring items to the church can order items from the OLUMC Amazon Wish-list.
    Please ship to: Oak Lawn UMC, 3014 Oak Lawn Ave, Dallas, Texas, 75219
