This nonprofit is a Virginia-accredited Domestic Violence Program which serves Fredericksburg, Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania, and Stafford Counties. Empowerhouse supports the needs of domestic violence survivors and their children. It provides safe-house shelters, a 24-hour hotline, victim advocacy, children’s services, and support groups for victims. They serve over 2,400 people and shelter over 100 adults and 100 children, on average, each year.

HELP FEED THE HUNGRY IN KING GEORGE: FOOD DONATIONS
The DUMC Mission Action Group (MAG) has a 2020 goal of collecting 1.75 Ton (3,500 lbs.) of food to help with food shortages in the King George area. There are local families with children, disabled citizens and elderly that need help. When donating food, think canned meat and beans, peanut butter, jelly and high protein items. However, any food donated will not be refused. Place your food donations in the wooden box by the stairs in the atrium. Check out the DUMC Food Thermometer on the atrium wall to see how the Church is doing. All food donated at DUMC is transported to a local food bank every week. Note: The Mis-sion Action Group (MAG) is looking for Church volunteers to help transport food to the food banks. If you are available and can help, please let a member of the Mission team know.
