Imagine No Malaria! Recycle to Help.

During August, Asbury UMC is accepting donations of printer ink and toner cartridges to be recycled for cash that we will donate to Imagine No Malaria.  Just drop your donation in the bins in the narthex of the sanctuary or the church office.  Cash donations are welcome as well.  Just make your check payable to Asbury UMC, with “Malaria” on the memo line.

Every 60 seconds, malaria claims a life in Africa. Transmitted by mosquitos, it kills an estimated 655,000 people each year, many of them children.  Yet, malaria is 100% preventable and treatable!  Imagine No Malaria is an extraordinary effort of the people of The United Methodist Church to help end malaria deaths through prevention, education, communication and treatment.

Stop by the Serve Others with Love Table during the Fellowship Hour to learn more about this important global initiative.
