Report from the Fundraising Committee for the Syrian Refugee Fund

With the fantastic news that a Syrian family has been chosen, there is a new urgency to raise the funds necessary to sponsor them.

We’re encouraging UCM members to solicit funds from neighbours and friends. One of our youth members raised over $500 last weekend going door to door in her neighbourhood. Many people were eager to give, and some gave a considerable amount. Another of our members had the idea to solicit funds from fellow teachers at her college during lunch hour and raised almost $120.
If you’re willing to help with this campaign, please email emmampmclaughlin@gmail.com for a copy of the required form.

Or, if asking for donations is not your thing, you are invited to go to the UCM website and make a pledge. Every donation is greatly appreciated and tax receipts are available for donations of $25 or more.
