Since it’s beginning, Emma Norton Services has had no greater partner and supporter than the
United Methodist Women. ENS thanks all UMW units that donate through their districts as well as
those that donate through direct gifts.

We apologize for any inaccuracies or omissions.
                                                                                Partners along the Journey of Change |

in Kind donors

We would also like to thank hundreds of Individuals, Communities of Faith, Corporations and Groups for the invaluable “In-Kind”
donations you provided in 2008 including rent, paper products, cleaning supplies, personal hygiene items and gifts for residents,
to name a few. Your generous In-Kind gifts save the agency from purchasing these items, which means more resources are
available for important programs and services.

                                            Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! thank you! Thank you!

Our volunteers make the real difference for our residents. They mentor families, tutor children after school, teach important
skills, arts and crafts, coordinate social activities and holiday parties, cook and serve meals, garden and do yard work, repair,
clean and paint in our facilities, and do many, many other things in our community with the women and families served by
Emma Norton Services. Working together, we learn and achieve great things. We are so grateful for your precious gifts of time
and passion.
