West Syracuse Brown Memorial Missions

Winter 2024 School Supplies Needed

We are once again collecting school supply items mid-term for Brown Memorial (see list below). This is necessary due to the break-in that resulted in the loss of school supplies.

School supplies may be brought to our church – Camillus First United Methodist Church, 12 Genesee Street, Camillus, NY 13031 (in the village next to the Library) – between 8 am and 3 pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays. We will be delivering donations to Brown Memorial the first week in February.

Sunday Meals and Worship

Once or twice a year we Serve dinner to the community around Brown Memorial Church and then we worship with them. All volunteers are welcome. Opportunities to serve, cook, and even play musical instruments are available. If you are interested in helping out please contact the office or someone from the Mission Team.

Clothing Drive and Free Market

Brown Memorial has a free weekly clothing handout to the people in need. We are constantly collecting clothing for this purpose. Jackets, socks, and hats are a great need especially during the Syracuse winter months


Each year Camillus First UMC supports the efforts of Brown Memorial as they bring Christmas cheer to the community in the form of gifts and meals.

Brown Memorial also offers a Christmas Shop for children and families to choose gifts to give to each other in the spirit of Christmas joy!
