Our recent mission campaigns and collections have helped so many people. Here are some of the results of our work:
Our summer-long campaign for the Church World Service Blankets+ program was a big success as we collected $535! Blankets+ provides blankets, food and other emergency supplies after a disaster, tools and seeds to refugees returning to their homes to replant their fields, wells for families living in drought-prone areas, and literacy training and microcredit loans for women struggling to realize their potential. Thanks to everyone who contributed to this important effort!
We collected enough school supplies in July and August to fill four backpacks! We gave one backpack to the United Way’s backpack campaign, one to Ogden Prep, and two to Gramercy Elementary. Thanks to everyone who helped provide the tools that kids need to succeed!
The offering collected at our worship service with the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ogden on Sept. 11 was donated to Your Community Connection (YCC). We collected $328.79 that day! Among many other types of assistance, the YCC provides food and clothing to people in crisis, and domestic violence recovery counseling and prevention education.
