How To Help Us


There are several ways you can help:

  1. We have a mainstay list of items we put into the children’s backpacks.  If you wish to shop and donate items, please CLICK HERE to see an alphabetical list to choose from. Our budget is $7.00 per bag, so you can imagine how much donated products help us stretch our dollars to help the students.
  2. Make a secure online donation to Goodness Now.   Every dollar donated online goes directly towards the purchase of Backpack items for the children.
  3. You can also make an impact by just using our site to start your online shopping experience.  When you buy from one of the retailers highlighted on, a percentage of your purchases support our cause, and 100% of our proceeds go directly to Goodness Now.   Shop from our partner retailers and recommend us to your friends.
  4. We can always use helping hands to pack meals and deliver, please email me about the schedule.
  5. If you wish to mail a donation, please make your check payable to Goodness Now and mail it to: Middletown United Methodist Church, 924 Middletown-Lincroft Road, Middletown, NJ 07748, Attn: Goodness Now.

Whichever method you chose, you’re helping the children.   Donations made by physical shopping purchases and online donations (submit your receipts to the Financial Secretary) are tax-deductible under Middletown United Methodist Church.
