God calls us to reach out to help our world. At CUMC Upward, we believe it important teach our kids, in practical ways, how to answer a call to service. That’s the intent of our White Star Campaign at the end of each season.
In 2009, we began a partnership with Nothing But Nets, a malaria-prevention oriented charity chartered by the United Nations Foundation and co-sponsored by the United Methodist Church, the NBA, the Gates Foundation and others.
Malaria has a devastating impact on Upward-aged children in Africa and Asia. $10 given to Nothing But Nets buys an insecticide treated bed net to protect children and their families from the mosquitoes that cause malaria.
All referees will be wearing a White Star Campaign shirt. This season, we’re allowing families order their own White Star Campaign t-shirt through CustomInk. Orders must be placed by February 10 and will be ready for pickup on February 24.
