UCC kicks off refugee-sponsorship fundraiser with urgent appeal

Okay UCC, it’s time to lead by example. Let’s rally together as a community and raise enough to sponsor a Syrian refugee family’s journey and one year of resettlement support in Toronto.

The goal, school-wide, is $50,000, the deadline is March 7 and we’ve made it easy with an online link: www.ucc.on.ca/refugeefund.

In terms of the community-service education we promote, there is no finer way to show our support and heed the call of one of the most urgent humanitarian appeals of our time. The UCC Refugee Sponsorship Group — aka: “Faces of Change” at the Prep — is a community-wide effort and participation counts. Though we suggest individual gifts of about $50, every gift, no matter the size, will help us reach our goal. Note: As we are not a registered charity, donations aren’t tax deductible.

Please consider making a gift now. Cheques are payable to “UCC Refugee Sponsorship Group” and may be left at the main offices. For more information please view the blog at http://uccrefugeesponsorship.blogspot.ca/
