The Cox Memorial United Methodist Church in Hallowell plans to hold a silent auction for the benefit of UMCOR at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, April 4, at 29 Middle St.

All proceeds will go to provide essentials to the citizens of Ukraine. The sale will close 15 minutes after the closing of the 10 a.m. church service, according to a news release from the church.

Among the items are a $50 gift card to the Liberal Cup, $50 gift card to The Sea Dog Brewing Company, $20 gift card to Dollar Tree, five gift card bouquet, three pieces of children’s butterfly jewelry valued at $150, a Thomas Kincaid puzzle, a Chef Pantry ice cream maker, Foosketball by Hasbro, an instant pot, an oil painting, and a roll of forever stamps.

UMCOR is the United Methodist Committee on Relief, with grants already going to Ukraine, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and Romania to support those who have remained in Ukraine or fled the violence to neighboring nations.

The church took a collection early in March, with almost $2,000 contributed to UMCOR.
