Alternative gift giving runs from December 4 – 18

On behalf of the BCC Mission Team, we hope that you will be inspired by the speakers and works of the YMCA of Waukesha County, Cannedwater4kids, and Khariar Hospital, India (via Global Ministries) to learn about the operation and needs of their respective organizations during our Sunday service on December 4th.

December 18th is the last Sunday members of our team will be available before and after church to accept donations on behalf of yourself or as a gift to honor another person via our Christmas card.


There are two ways to give


This DONATION FORM includes descriptions of each of the three organizations. You can allocate the amount of your gift between the organizations as you wish.  Please note that If you want to give your donation as a gift to honor another person, you can fill out the inside of the available Christmas card and insert description(s) of the organization(s) (available separately) to give to your friends or relatives.

OR, YOU CAN DONATE ONLINE by December 18th under the Missions Gift Festival fund tab. Then please follow up with an e-mail to Mary K Pofahl or the church with regard as to how you wish to allocate your gift between the organizations.  If you have any questions, please call Connie Sandell at 414-712-3817. Thank you for your interest and participation!

 

Here is some information on these three featured charities:

CannedWater4Kids (cW4k) is a 501c3 charity based in Sussex, Wisconsin founded by Gregory Stromberg in January of 2008.The organization’s purpose is to ensure all children have access to sustainable, clean, safe drinking water. cW4k funds its initiatives with cash donations, grants, and through the North American sales of its premium drinking water packed in infinitely recyclable aluminum bottles and cans. Projects include bringing sustainable water purification solutions to remote countries and combatting the toxic levels of lead in Milwaukee tap water.

Khariar Hospital in one of the poorest districts in India was founded a hundred years ago by Wisconsin Missionaries and now serves some 200,000 marginal farm families. An emergency room for the Hospital is now being built and funds are needed for installation of modern equipment, including a new digital X-ray, anesthesia workstation, dialysis machine and a bio-chemistry analyzer in the laboratory.  There is a thriving congregation of Christian staff who believe in their ministry – no one is turned away for financial reasons – and the hospital compound also takes in abandoned girls who are orphans and run a small boarding school (mostly 50-60 girls) who learn to read and write.

The YMCA of Waukesha County gives the people in their community the support they need to learn, grow, and thrive both mentally and physical. When you give to the Y you make it possible for children, families, and adults to have access to Y programs vital to their personal growth and well-being. Through the Annual Campaign, we provide financial assistance to those who need it the most. From summer day camp to senior programming, disease prevention to youth sports, swim lessons to programs for cancer survivors, everything the Y does helps strengthen the neighborhood and the people who live here.
