On Sunday morning, 3 February, the youth group sponsored a pancake breakfast to raise money for this summer’s work trips. About 45 people turned out and $206 was raised.
Also that morning, we wrapped up the soup drive competition with the Baltimore UCC churches. In total, we collected 1755 points/cans. Trinity UCC collected just under 1100 and St. Michael’s a little less. The soup will be distributed to Lutheran Social Services and Maywood Mission to help feed the hungry of Fairfield County. A huge thank you to everyone who brought in soup.
The third event that took place on 3 February was the Souper Bowl of Caring. This is the seventh year that we’ve participated at Grace UCC. In 2005, we collected $77. In 2006, we increased that to $106. Last year, we collected $128.21. This year, we’re excited to announce that we collected $250.
We’d like to thank all our members who so generously contributed to these efforts.
