Did you know that when you purchase flowers from Blooms by Vickrey you are helping us to support local non-profit efforts throughout central Pennsylvania? As part of our commitment to giving back, Blooms by Vickrey has partnered with several local organizations that are making a difference in the local community. One such group is Mission Central, the mission warehouse of the Susquehanna Conference of the United Methodist Church.
Mission Central began in 2002 as a three-pronged effort: Disaster Response, Mission Outreach and Mission Education with the objective to centralize and unify the mission work of the various churches within the Conference. Mission Central now has in-house Ministry Partners that include Bethesda Mission, Computer Ministry, UMCOR, New Digs and Project C.U.R.E., and partners with more than 80 other ministries throughout PA and around the world.
Mission Central hosts thousands of volunteers who are responsible for processing United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) kits of various types (School, Birthing, Health, Sewing, etc.) for use all around the world, as well as provide supplies of all types needed for local, national and international ministries and assist countless projects that are sending God’s love around the world. Working in concert with other denominational and nondenominational programs, and as a member of the UMCOR Relief Supply Network, Mission Central has been able to provide aid for people affected by every major weather event since 2002.« Back to .
