More than six months after Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico, many communities remain devastated and without basic needs. Because the need is so great and the spotlight of the media has faded, the Mission and Outreach Board has authorized a special offering to be collected to be given to the UCC’s “Emergency USA Fund” for continuing efforts on the island.
Donations received at Community Protestant Church by mail or in the offering plate by April 30, 2018 and marked “Puerto Rico Relief” will be matched dollar-for-dollar by CPC’s Restricted Mission Fund as a testament to the power of God’s people working together to alleviate suffering. If you are including a donation along with your regular offering, please indicate clearly what portion you would like to contribute to this effort.
