The special plate collection this Sunday, December 15, is for EightCap in Isabella County, a Community Action Agency which works for solutions to address the local conditions and causes of poverty in Isabella County. In our community, they address issues of housing and homelessness and emergencies, including heating and rental assistance. Your donation will be directed to their Walk for Warmth which provides heating assistance.
The September special collection is for the CMU Student Food Pantry, which works to alleviate the challenges and hardships of food insecurity that many CMU students encounter during their academic career. If you prefer to pay with a check, please make it out to: CMU, with Student Food Pantry on the memo line.
The UUFCM will be participating in the CROP Hunger Walk again this year. CROP Hunger Walk is not only a way to help end hunger around the world, but 25% of the money raised in the Mount Pleasant community goes toward efforts to end hunger here. You may choose to walk to raise money or you may choose to give to someone who is walking. There is also an online giving option. The actual walk will take place: Sunday, October 7, at Millpond Park with registration beginning at 1 p.m. Deb Allore will have envelopes and more information at Sunday services on September 23 and 30, and October 7.
