As our teachers are advocating for all of our students, we think it’s important we support our teachers as they continue to strive to make Oklahoma’s school systems better reflect the care and compassion we all have for our students.
So in that vein, we are proud to join with our other United Methodist Churches in Edmond to do what we can to support our students and families. Each UMC is taking responsibility for providing additional volunteers one day a week for our local YMCAs until the teacher walkout is complete.
Edmond First’s day of the week will be Thursdays, 9 am-3 pm. We need 25 volunteers. Each YMCA will open their doors for students to have a safe space to be, and it is exciting to be partnering with them as we support Edmond teachers, students, and families.
If you would like to volunteer, please email Rev. Trey at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP so we can begin preparing to be at the YMCA.
