A heartfelt thanks to all of you who donated to our three Mission Gift Festival non-profit organizations! Each of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), SOPHIA (Stewards of Prophetic Hopeful Intentional Action), and ASLC (Arts and Science Literacy Camp) have received checks for $1,559 each, for which they are very grateful, especially in these times. We plan to update you on these organizations’ activities and developments later on this year.
Also $1,000 was donated to the Wisconsin UCC camps for maintenance and support during a year where they had no campers/fees. This was completed in December as another donor would match that timely gift. In addition $500 of mission funds was allocated toward the needs (such as headbands, etc.) and appreciation for the front line workers at Froedtert and Northwestern Hospitals for which we have several connections with members of our congregation.
