Teams from FUMC Plano have made several trips to Haiti since 2011 to assist United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) efforts to aid people impacted by the 2010 Haiti earthquake, help build a neighborhood church (Croix des Missions Methodist Church), and to distribute water filters through that church to members of the church and community.
From May 27-June 3, 2017, a group of young adults and adults from First United Methodist Church of Plano, attended a mission trip to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. This group assembled water filters for 125 families in Haiti and instructed the families on water safety and how to use the filters.

FUMC Plano PX
FUMC Plano PX collects snacks, toiletries for U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan. Need is high because local PX’s are closing as troops withdraw, leaving those still on the ground with few options for obtaining such items.
Contact Bill Downs for the list of specific items needed. Cash donations also accepted to purchase items or defray shipping costs.
