UUFP members and friends are enjoying our virtual services and coffee hour offered each Sunday. Through Sunday offerings and through the dedication of our members and friends we continue to receive pledges and are also receiving contributions toward our new fundraiser “Raising the
Our fundraiser is to help cover expenses for our much-needed new roof repair and upgraded technology to help improve our ability to provide virtual services and events, to move us into the 21st century with our technology and to provide a dry and physically safe place for us to meet in the near future.
We are under budget with our pledges and donations by ~ $1600.00 this month and are under budget for our regular expenses by ~$1000. However, we have had to pay for our roof repair, of which 50% is repaired and paid for and have also paid for our upgraded technology. Both combined
have increased our expenses, outside of our expected budget, by ~$18, 000 ($12,000+ for the roof and ~$5000 for technology). To date we have raised $4150 toward our campaign to fund these expenses. We have paid $6300 for
the roof and $4800 toward technology. So, we have had to dig into our saving to cover these needed expenses.
Please be mindful of your pledges and donations to UUFP. We are extremely appreciative of any amount you can contribute to help keep UUFP moving forward and able to provide services, whether virtual or eventually in person, and to keep us all connected as a community. The goal of being able to live stream our services is important to keep us connected as we enter yet another upswing in the pandemic.
I hope that you all stay safe from this virus, and I know that each of you are wishing the same for all of our members and friends.
Miranda and I are putting together several fund raisers, that will hopefully bring in funds toward our continued roof repair and go toward the expenses of our upgraded technology, and most importantly that will connect us in fun ways. So, keep your eyes open for these announcements.
Joy, our bookkeeper, will send out letters via email, for your donations and pledges, for the year 2020, in January 2021. If you want your letter mailed please send an email to Joy at email@example.com or send a note to UUFP, 1565 S. Keim Street, Pottstown, PA, 19465.
Thank you. Have a wonderful holiday season, Linda P.
