Mission Challenge


This year’s mission challenge at Annual Conference will be to collect bulk items for Personal Dignity Kits for the Midwest Mission Distribution Center, our United Methodist disaster relief supply center just south of Springfield, Ill., which is celebrating 20 years of ministry in 2020.

See below for a list of assigned donations by district. Some of the items needed are bath hand towels, combs, adult toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, and shampoo.

All items must be new and can be bought at Dollar Tree.

Assigned donations by district – 2,000 of each item: 

  • Aurora: Adult Toothbrushes • Clear Adhesive Bandages (30 ct)
  • Chicago Northwestern: 1 Gallon Sealable Plastic Bags • Single Blade Razors (with guard)
  • Chicago Southern: Combs  • Shampoo (16 oz.) 
  • DeKalb: Bath Hand Towels •  Bath Washcloths
  • Elgin: Deodorant (2-3 oz.) • Bar Soap (3-4 oz.) 
  • Rockford: Toothpaste 2.5 oz. or larger • Fingernail clippers with file

To buy bulk items from Dollar Days and save click here and bring the receipt with the donation form to the Mission Truck at Annual Conference. If you have a valid Tax Exempt Certification and/or Reseller Certificate, you may submit this to for review. Once approved, (typically within 24 business hours or sooner) you will receive an email confirmation that your account has been coded as tax-exempt and future orders will be tax-free.
