About Our Auction
The United Methodist Women of Asbury Church present this auction as part of their annual bazaar. Proceeds from the auction will provide funds through various outlets for those in need of food, shelter, clothing, educational assistance, medical supplies and care, and disaster relief. This support is given locally, nationally and world-wide.
In this current pandemic, missions need for funding is going to be more critical. Your support of our efforts to help others in need is greatly appreciated.
